Are you on several teams? Part of too many projects? You work remotely? Or you simply want to know what your teammates are doing? Here’s a post that will give you several options on how to stay on top of all the activity that is occurring within your initiatives inside Planbox. There are options for everyone, see which ones suits your needs best!
1. Subscribe to E-mail notifications for Items
E-mail notifications are managed separately for each initiative you have. See how to adjust your settings here.
E-mail notifications for items can be sent to your e-mail inbox. You can be notified every time a change occurs in your initiatives. For a personalized real-time feed, you can set up a filter for all Planbox notifications in your e-mail client. That way, it also won’t clutter your inbox! (See how for: Gmail, Outlook)
See the following example in Gmail:
We have recently improved the layout of the items’ e-mail notifications. Here’s the anatomy of a typical message:
2. Subscribe to E-mail Digests
Planbox can also send you a digest containing in a single e-mail with all the changes you want to see. They are sent out during the morning either daily, on weekdays only, or weekly on Mondays.
3. Consult the Activities Tile on the Iteration Board
The Activities Tile is the Planbox news feed. You can find it on the Iteration Board of the Items and Tasks. This tile logs everything that is being done, by everyone, inside your initiative. This is also the only place where you can see which items were deleted. Actually, you can even restore those deleted items from here!
In sum, here are the options we recommend for corresponding behaviours:
Also, coming soon: Live Notifications
We’re working on developing real-time notifications that will occur within the Planbox application. Despite giving you the option to know changes happening live within your Planbox, these notifications will not be too intrusive. In addition to notifications that are currently available through e-mail, what else would you like to be notified about?
Alternate things you can track in Planbox:
- Newly added and modified items: Iteration Baseline Tile
- Your Team’s Progress: People and Progress Tile
- Each Team Member’s Progress: Applying Filters
