Alerts are system-generated email notifications that something in the workspace has changed. Assembla allows you to choose whether you would like to receive workspace alerts by email, RSS feed, or both.
Why do I get email alerts?
When you become a team member in a space, we set your account to receive email alerts about all events on that space. So every time you join a space you will receive emails unless you specify otherwise.
How do I change my email alert settings?
In the Stream page of each workspace, each user can click the link "Email notifications" to choose the tools they want to receive alerts for, and the frequency of alerts.
How do I turn off email alerts?
You can change your Alert Settings via the top of your Stream page in each space- you can deselect alerts for specific tools, or turn off all email alerts by selecting "Email me: Never".
Or, just go to one of our emails. At the bottom of every email is a line that says "Click here to change or remove your alert setting for this Assembla space." Click on that link, and it will take you to the Alerts page in the space.
How to set the default alerts for a space?
If you are an Owner in a space, you can go the Admin tab and click the "Email Alert Settings" link to choose the default alert settings that users will receive when you add them to the space. This does not affect the existing alert settings for each user who is already a member of that space.
Why should I use RSS?
Many of our users prefer RSS feeds because:
- Feed readers organize alerts by workspace
- Assembla customizes the feed generated so that you can watch the activities of specific team members
- Separating notifications from emails reduces inbox clutter
