  • First and last name
  • Title
  • Handle - the @mention other users would use to message you
  • Mobile
  • Social Media
    • Twitter
    • LinkedIn
    • Facebook

In the notifications tab, you can choose which messages you want to be notified of, enable notification sounds, and enable email notifications.

Notification options:

  • All messages - any message that is posted to a conversation or channel
  • All Mentions @'handle' / @all / @online - when an @command is used, a notification will be sent
  • Only @'handle' - when another user @mentions you in a conversation or channel
  • No messages - no notification will be sent

Notification sounds:

  • Disabling will mute the sound alert on all messages received from other users. Desktop notifications will still be sent however sound alerts will become muted.
Email notifications:

  • Receive email notifications for messages when you’re away or offline.
By replying to an email notification from Teamwork Chat, your reply is posted to that conversation/channel.

Note:  Any changes made to notification settings will only affect the current version of the app you are using, and won't transfer across to other versions (desktop or browser).
