How to Use and Manage Notifications

 

What Notifications Are Available?

 

Due Date Notifications

If you set a due date for a task, that is assigned to you, 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. 

 

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.
  • 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 notifications in your notification settings.

Notification Limit

We have a maximum limitation on unread notifications a single user can have of 10.000 unread notifications. All notifications past that number are automatically marked as read.

Manage Your Notifications

 

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

None of this works - I have notifications turned on for the phone and laptop - I have reminders turned on for 5 minutes before - I have gone through everything and I still don't get pop up alerts for tasks or reminders. If this can't get fixed then I will have to use another service....
