You receive notifications when you are added as a member to an item, collection, or workspace. You also receive a notification when a change is made to an item, filter, or collection you're subscribed to, when a reminder is due, or when you're mentioned in a comment. 

Accessing the inbox and the first steps

The inbox can be accessed by either clicking the tiny inbox symbol within the collapsed panel or choosing "Inbox" within the open side panel on the left side of the screen If you have any unread notifications, the icon shows a small number.

Notifications that you haven't yet read are marked with a blue bar. Clicking on the notification will bring you to the workspace, collection, or item you are being notified of.

To mark a notification as read without doing this, click the two little ticks, that appear when hovering over the notification.

To mark all notifications as read, click the "..."-symbol in the top right corner of the menu and choose "Mark all as read".

This is where you will also be able to access the notification settings or to archive all notifications.
