Configuring notifications

On the notification settings page you can set how to be notified and what information you want to be notified about. You can find the page by clicking your name in the top right corner of ftrack, selecting Settings in the menu and then Notifications in the menu to the left.

There are two basic options on how to be notified: internal notifications and email notifications. To turn on notifications for a certain type, add the notification options that you want. To turn them off, simply remove the options. The third option, Include in digest e-mail, is the setting that determines whether or not to include the notification type in your digest emails.

What the different notification types mean:

Daily email digests

As part of the notifications settings, you can also configure a daily digest. This is a great way to get all the information you need gathered into one email. Perfect if you don’t like to receive email on every little thing that occurs.
