Configure and view notifications

Notifications in Dovetail are designed to keep you informed on what matters to you.

When notifications are triggered

Dovetail sends notifications via email and the notification center within the product.

Notifications are triggered when:

  • Someone mentions you with @your_username.

  • Someone comments on something you've created.

  • Someone shares something with you.

  • A highlight reel you requested is ready to download.

  • A transcription you requested has been completed.

  • A project digest is ready to view (sent by email only).

View the notification center

The notification center helps you stay up-to-date with changes made by others without needing to leave Dovetail.

When you have new notifications, a badge with the number of unread notifications will appear over your profile picture in the top right corner. You will also see a real-time prompt on the bottom right of your screen when a new notification is triggered during a session.

To access your notifications you:

  1. Click your profile photo in the top right corner.

  2. Click Notifications.
