We are really excited to announce that we now have instant event notifications enabled for everyone directly within TeamworkPM. You should now see the notifications bar at the bottom right of your screen.

The number at the front is the amount of notifications you haven’t seen.

Instant notifications

As actions happen on your projects, you will see events pop-up on top of this bar. These event notifications are designed to not get in your way or be too distracting. The events display for a second and then slide away.

This feature really makes you feel more connected with your team, clients, and contractors. It will also allow you to respond to events must faster than before.
Catch-up and miss nothing
When instant notifications pop-up and slide-away, the number of notifications in the indicator increase. Clicking the “View all” button will open up your full list of recent notifications.

This feature allows you to quickly catch-up on what has been happening while you were out.
If an item is of interest to you, you can click on it to go directly to that event. The great thing is the list will remain in place so you don’t lose your place making it incredibly easy to jump around your account checking on everything that has happened.
Another great thing about these notifications is that you will see all events on your projects, even if a task wasn’t assigned directly to you, or you didn’t get message notifications. This allows you to keep abreast on what’s going on.
Note that if there are a lot of notifications you can scroll through them using your mouse wheel.
Clearing the list
You can dismiss a notification simply by clicking the “x” in the top right of the notification.
Alternatively, you can dismiss all notifications and set your notifications count back to zero by clicking on Clear all button on your notifications bar.
Pin events for later
During beta testing, we receive a request to “pin” events. This is useful if there are some events that you definitely don’t want to dismiss and want to return to later on.

Clicking the “pin” icon on a notification will cause the notification to be “pinned”. This prevents you from being able to dismiss this event until you click the “unpin” icon.
Private events
Naturally enough, notifications for private items will only be sent to those people who should see them. If a notification relates to a private item, you will see a padlock appear on the notification.
