Signing up for notifications in Kanbanize allows you to keep track of your team's activities and your own work items. You have the option to subscribe only for notifications, you are interested in.
Note: Notification settings are configured per board!
To configure your notifications -> go to the Notifications tab at the top right of your screen -> click on Settings.
When you open the Notifications panel -> select the board from the dropdown for which you wish to receive notifications.
In Kanbanize, there are two types of notifications: System notifications (In App) and email notifications (Email).

You can personalize your board notifications by: 1) disabling the notifications for your own actions and 2) selecting to receive notifications only for cards, where you're an assigned or a contributor.
There is also an option to view your system notifications as pop up notifications on your desktop even when Kanbanize is minimized.

Why do I still receive notifications?
If you continue receiving notifications from Kanbanize even though you have unsubscribed, check the following:
- Check, if you have unsubscribed for all boards you are assigned to, as the notification settings are per board.
- Check, if you are assigned as a card watcher. Card watchers receive notifications even if they have unsubscribed for the notifications on the board.
- Check if there is no active Runtime Policy, which is set to send you notifications when certain events occur.
