You can:

  • turn off email notifications

  • receive mail attachments via email.

You can also receive email notifications for overdue tasks.

If you have notification enabled you will receive daily updates for issues:

  • that are assigned to you
  • the status changes for an issue you’ve created.

Note that the default notification settings vary according to a user’s Field role.
