Personal Notifications

Nick Cron Updated by Nick Cron

Personal notifications in Slack replace your Jira emails with our app. You get notified from the bot when relevant issues are updated that effect your day.

What to know:

  • You can manage your notifications and how often you get notified with your user settings.
  • Our app includes smart grouping and other features to reduce the number of notifications
  • Most users filter / auto-delete Jira emails once implemented.
