Set the email notification default for users in your organization

As the Org Admin you can choose whether, by default, users receive email notifications when they are sent a project mail.

You can set email notifications to be sent when:

  • a user receives a project mail in Aconex, and
  • the user has an overdue task.

You can also control how much information is included in an email notification. As you can see below, the Entire email body email notification on the left contains the project mail content. The notification-only email on the right does not.

You can set the defaults, but be aware that each user can also change their own notification settings.
