What kind of notifications are available in MeisterTask?

1. Due date notifications

If you set a due date for a task, MeisterTask will remind you of this upcoming due date via email, one day before the task is due. If you're using the mobile app, you can also enable push notifications to remind you of upcoming due dates. Here you can select how long in advance you want to receive the reminder - you can select anything from 5 minutes before the due date to 1 week before the due date

2. Task notifications

You receive task notifications whenever one of your team members does something that concerns you or one of the tasks you are involved in. Here's a complete list of all task notifications you receive:

  • Someone has assigned a task to you
  • Someone has trashed or completed a task you were assigned to or were watching.
  • Someone has added a checklist item to a task you were assigned to or were watching.
  • Someone has commented on a task you were assigned to or were watching.
  • Someone has mentioned you in a comment.
  • Someone has liked a comment or activity of yours.

 

These task notifications are shown in chronological order on the right side of your dashboard, where they appear in real-time. In addition to that, you can enable email, sound and desktop notifications in your notification settings.

To open the task which the notification relates to, just click on the notification itself. 

To mark a notification as read, hover over the notification icon (on the left) until it turns into an X, and then click on it.

Click on the little triangle next to All Notifications to switch between All Notifications (including the ones you've already marked as read), Notifications (only the ones you haven't read yet), and Recent Mentions (to show only comments you were recently mentioned in).
