Taking care of notifications

Notifications are displayed in chronological order so that the most recent is on the top.

How to manage notifications:

  • Open a notification to get more info: Click on the notification bar to expand it; click again to minimize it.

  • Go to an account: Click on the account name.

  • Go to the corresponding section: Click Go to... (the gray box with an arrow) in the bottom left of the expanded notification bar. This will take you to the email, invoice page, task, chat thread or document preview in a new tab. If an email address is linked to several accounts, you’ll be able to choose where you want to go.

  • View and/or download a document: Click on the file’s name to open it.

  • View an invoice or payment: Click on the invoice or payment link to see more.

  • View a completed organizer/signed proposal: Click on the organizer’s or proposal’s name to open it.

  • Archive a notification: Click Archive to move it to the Archived tab.

  • Restore a notification: If you clicked Archive by mistake, you can always restore a notification. Go to the Archived tab, select the notification you want to restore, then click Restore (the green box with an arrow) on the bottom left of the expanded notification bar. It will then return to the Inbox+ tab.

  • Perform bulk actions with notifications: To mark notifications as done or to restore all of them or several at once, select the checkbox at the top of the list or the checkboxes next to the documents, then click Archive or Restore.

By default, the notification list displays 25 notifications per page. To change the amount, select the number you prefer in the Rows per page menu on the bottom left of the page.

Email notifications

Team members who have access to a client’s account receive a notification in their Inbox+ whenever a client sends a new email to your firm or replies to an existing thread. When they reply to a thread, the notification is updated. When there’s a new email in a thread, the notification is updated and moves to the top. If it’s archived, it moves out of the To Do items.

You can also:

  • Mute email threads: This turns off email notifications in a thread. For more on muting, go here.
  • Create tasks from email: Learn more here.
  • Save an attachment to Client’s Docs: Hover your mouse over the file thumbnail, click the save icon, then upload. You can also autosave attachments clients email you.

System notifications

System messages pop up when a bulk action cannot be performed. To view all system notifications in your Inbox+, apply the System filter (for detailed instructions, see Filtering Notifications below). Learn how to troubleshoot all system notifications here:

Filtering notifications

Filters help narrow your notifications list. For example, find all notifications about invoices paid by all clients. For more on using filters, go here.

To filter a notifications list:
