Following a task and subtask means, you will receive notifications about new activities in the task or subtask. Typically when someone adds comments, completes a task or changes a due date.
There are two types of notifications:
- Freelo notifications in the app – these have default settings.
- E-mail notifications that you can set as you like in the profile Settings.
When do you start following a task?
- When someone assigns a sub/task to you.
- When you create a task.
- When someone marks you in the list of followers.
