Notifications in Freelo

The notification center in Freelo (the bell icon) works on a similar basis as for example on Facebook. When you have some new notifications there is a red badge with a number.

You can mark them as read or unread in case you want to return to them later. The unread notifications are yellow.

Click the eye icon to mark the notification as read (white) or unread (yellow).

Each notification has a three-dot menu where you can set:

  1. Task or subtask following
  2. Task or subtask reminder
  3. Add task or subtask to My task priorities

When do you get notifications

Email notifications

Some people prefer to work within email. In such cases, we would recommend setting up email notifications. They “copy” Freelo notifications but you can select which ones you want in Settings.

When do you become a sub/task follower?

You automatically become a task and subtask follower when you:

  • Comment on a task or subtask.
  • Someone assigns you a task or subtasks.
  • When someone adds you as a follower.
  • When you click Start following or Follow.

Keyboard shortcut to open a modal window

Do you want to see details of the task or subtask directly from the notification center? Use a keyboard shortcut to open modal the window with a discussion and other details.

Place the mouse over a notification and click Q. Open a modal window with task or subtask detail. There you can add comments, and attachments, change the due date, solver, etc.

Filter notifications

Go to the bell icon and click All.

Click All and go to the Notification list with all the details.

Time restrictions or (temporary/permanent) disabling of notifications

In case you use Freelo for your job, you may want to limit notifications to your work hours. Freelo has an easy solution for these cases! Just select the times you want to receive notifications in the Notifications section of Settings.

This is how you set notifications for restricted times.

If you receive a notification of the time limit, the Freelo notification bell stays quiet, doesn’t show you the notification and you can enjoy your time off undisturbed. When you get back to work, just click the notification bell and you’ll see the muted notifications highlighted in yellow.
