Using Notifications

Use notifications to stay informed about your project and stay informed about activities that are meaningful to you.

Notifications can be managed by the Project Administrators, who can determine if other project members can modify their own email notification settings.

Notifications to be sent on a daily basis and/or choose to have them sent in real time as the activity happens.

Notifications can be generated for all the tracked activities, such as files being uploaded, downloaded or updated.

Known Limitations

  • Receiving notifications about individual files or folders is not supported

  • New comment notifications are sent to all project members, and cannot be send to a specific user

Setting Up Notifications

Trimble Connect projects have default notifications for:

  • ToDo assignment

To change the project notification settings

  1. Open your project in Trimble Connect for Browser.

  2. Go to the Settings › Notifications page.

  3. Select whether other project members can modify their own notification settings or if only the Project Administrators can customize the settings (default option).

  4. Choose which categories you want to receive notifications about. You can also expand the category to narrow down the activities. For example, choosing to receive notifications for all file related activity or choosing to receive notifications about file uploads.

  5. For each selected activity or category, choose if the notifications should be sent in a daily digest email or if they should be sent instantly when the activity happens.
    Note: If you choose daily digest, you can also modify the time when to receive the email.

  6. When you are finished, click Save changes.

Please note

Turning on Instant emails will send emails to all project members (including to the user who performed the action) whenever any of these activities are performed.

It is not recommended to turn on Instant Notifications for an entire category (like Files) for all project members.
