Vizlib Teamwork Guides - Notifications

Vizlib Teamwork introduced Notifications in v.2.4.0. You can use them to trigger an alert about any changes to an action which interests you, e.g. a reply or a mention in a thread you are following. 

Notifications are internal communications passed within Vizlib Teamwork, so they can function across different sheets and apps.

Note: This article can be used with versions of Vizlib Teamwork v2.4.0 and above, including the v3.0.0 re-design.



You can open your notifications list by clicking the icon in the top right of the Teamwork stream window. Figure 1 shows a user in the app Vizlib Teamwork User Demo opening a notification and being taken to the app Vizlib Teamwork. The notification list in each app contains the same notification list, and the same read status.

Creating Notifications

When you're using Vizlib Teamwork, you'll create notifications automatically in the following circumstances. 

  • When someone replies to a thread, a notification is created for the thread's owner and for every user added to the stream. If you'd like to learn more about threads in Vizlib Teamwork, click here
  • When a user is mentioned in a comment or a thread. If you'd like to learn more about Vizlib Teamwork mentions, click here

Once the notification is created, you'll see an alert in your notification list (Figure 2).

Reading Notifications

If you have an unread notification waiting, you'll see a red marker with a number inside indicating the number of notifications you have (Figure 3). The notifications list opens when you click the  icon.

Unread notifications are marked with a dot, and you can either mark a notification as read by clicking on the dot, or clear every unread notification by clicking Mark all as read

Each notification contains a link to the comment where the notification was created. Clicking the link opens the app in a new tab and takes you to the comment, quickly placing the notification in its wider context.

Teamwork Notifications can't be deleted, so you can still view all of your notifications by clicking the  icon to open the list.
