Email Notification for each Project

Email Settings consist of:

  • overall settings
  • settings for each project

On this page, we will explain settings for each project in further detail. To learn more about overall settings, please refer to "Email Notification".

Configuring the settings for each project allows you to refine the type of emails you receive from Backlog. Say, for example, you would like to receive project report emails for a particular project and not the rest, this individual settings would come in handy for you.

To start, go to the Settings by Project section and click on Browse and Add Project. Add the project that you would like to set individual settings for to the table. Projects that are not listed in this table will take on the configuration in Basic Settings with regards to emails.

1. When

Choose the type of issue-related events you would like to receive email notifications for.

Select "Added or updated" to receive email notifications when the following events occur:

  • When an issue is added
  • When an issue is closed
  • When an issue is assigned to you
  • When multiple issues are updated

If you choose "Comment is added", you will receive email notifications when a comment is added.

2. What

Choose the scope of issues you would like to receive email notifications for.
Select "All issues" to receive email notifications for all issues.
Uncheck "All issues" if you would only like to receive email notifications for issues assigned to you and/or issues registered by you.

Emails will not be sent when the user adding or updating the Wiki can does not choose "Send mail notification when created".

4. Notifications

Check this box to receive email notifications whenever you are notified in events.
If you have unchecked "Added or updated" in the Issue section, you will still receive email for when an issue is added or completed if that event is notified to you.
If you have unchecked "Comment is added" in the Issue section, you will still receive email for comments if they are notified to you.
Even if you have set restrictions on emails in the Issue section, you will still receive email for restricted events as long as you have been notified in them.

5. Project Report

This is for daily project report setting. The project report contents the issues due on today and issues over the due date.
This setting also applies to the email notifications you receive when stars are awarded to you in the project.

6. Receive emails about version controls

For Subversion, you can use this feature for the projects with "Create a repository on Backlog" Subversion settings.
If you choose this option, you'll receive emails on every commit/push about the details of Subversion commit and Git push.
You will receive emails when the Git's pull request has been added, updated or a comment is added to the pull request.

These settings are enabled only if the "Receive e-mail" box at the top of the Email Settings page has been checked.
