Update and Notification After Accepting a Request

  • User Notification: A user receives a notification in the Notifications tab after you accept the join request. Click the Notifications bellicon to see the notifications.

  • Update on the team's wall: If you marked the "Automatically generate an update on the team wall with the mention of the user" check-box while approving the join request, the system automatically posts an update on the private project or private group's wall mentioning the user.

User notification (User Portal > Change My Settings > Notifications Settings > In-app & Email) in the notifications list is dependent on the settings adjusted in the User Portal for each user.

When a user requests to join a private project or a private group, the network admin and the team admin both receive the join requests as a notification. If you have turned on the email notifications for your domain, you also receive an email when a user requests to join your private project or private group. A team admin can go to the Requests tab of the private project or private group to accept or decline the join requests. Also, a team admin can accept or decline a join request from the notifications list.
