About Working With Emails
By becoming a subscriber to discussions and discussion groups , you can connect Clarizen's entire Social feature to your email client via InterAct .
In this way, y ou can remain informed and involved with Clarizen via email notification. Email notifications enable you to read, reply and Like d iscussions and d iscussion groups as well as start new discussions and unsubscribe .
Email notifications include a link enabling you to navigate directly into a discussion's container to understand the discussion context.
The InterAct feature enables adding and setting rules.
Automatic email notifications are received without subscribing if you are added to a group, if someone Likes your discussion message (post or reply) and if someone is Following you.
There are options to the email notification you can receive on discussion groups, including the ability to receive a daily or weekly email digest. Daily and weekly digests allow you to stay on top of discussions without the need to receive emails on each new post or reply. This setting can be made on each individual discussion group, meaning that you can determine the groups from which you receive notifications on for every post.
For example, a critical discussion group that you need to be able to respond to instantly and groups where a daily or weekly digest will be sufficient.
