Setting up how you receive email notifications

Changing the information you receive in notification emails, or turn off email notifications altogether.

By default, you'll receive a notification via email every time someone sends you a project mail in Aconex. You can change the amount of information you receive via email, or turn off email notifications.

You can:

  • turn off email notifications
  • receive the entire text of the project mail, instead of only a link back to Aconex
  • receive mail attachments via email.

You can also receive email notifications for overdue tasks.
