System Notifications

Overview

System notifications are a convenient way to inform your team about certain tasks and activities within the Betterworks application. Since the notifications are sent via email, we recommend whitelisting our email and IP addresses to prevent them from being blocked or going to spam.

Note: System notifications are disabled by default and need to be enabled.
