NB: We have a new left hand side, column style navigation bar which replaces the original top banner, text based bar.  By way of a quick guide, working from the top down; the Method Grid avatar (or your company graphic for the Professional customers), is your link to your account home page (a page which will evolve into your “Productivity Hub” throughout 2021). Second is your notifications centre; third, the account search; fourth, your grid library; fifth, you dashboards; sixth, the light bulb, your link to element templates and example grids; seventh, your members and group pages; eighth, help and support; and finally your profile image, the place for profile and account settings, the switch account feature (for those with multiple accounts) and the other areas that currently sit there.

You can read the release blog here.

An architect can decide whether to give members control of their own notification settings, or to set them up at an organisation level.

Notifications settings are defaulted to allow members to configure their own preferences. If you want to prevent this, go to Settings > Notifications and set 'Allow members to specify their own notification settings' to 'No'.

Now members will not be able to change any of their own notification settings.

Configuring notifications

There are two places notifications can be configured. 

  1. Settings > Notifications - This is where architects set them at the organization level
  2. Profile image dropdown (top right corner of nav) > Your settings - This is a member configures their individual preference (if permitted)

For emails, you can decide to have instant notifications, a daily summary, or no notifications, the choice is yours. In-app is always instant and cannot be changed, however we find that this in non-intrusive. Notifications can be configured for the following activities:

  1. Comments you are @mentioned in - instant (default, can be changed)
  2. Tasks you are assigned
  3. Elements you are assigned
  4. Due date set on assigned element
  5. Stages you are assigned
  6. Due date set on assigned stage
  7. Themes you are assigned
  8. Grids you are assigned
  9. Due date set on assigned grid
  10. Grids you are given access too - summary (default, can be changed)
  11. Folders you are given access too - summary (default, can be changed)
  12. Groups you are added too - summary (default, can be changed)

The daily summary email is sent at 7am each morning and relays the above activity for the previous 24 hours.

Each member can now set their own timezone to allow for international usage. Go to the Date and Time tab of the Your settings page and select your timezone from the dropdown.
