The Activity Stream App


The Activity Stream app helps you and your team to stay up-to date with the most important updates to your tasks, milestones, projects, files and other Clarizen items. You can get notified by a post on the item’s discussion board or by an email when a major event happens, for example, a project becomes at risk or a milestone due date has been shifted. You can also configure what notifications you wish to receive.

Note: The app does not support projects marked as a portfolio.

Note: For new customers (after February 21, 2016), the application is pre-installed, and notifications are enabled with the default value set to Posts Only.

Enabling the app

A System administrator can enable, disable and uninstall the app in Settings > Applications > Installed Applications.

Configuring notifications

Once the application is installed, a System administrator can configure the notification settings in Settings > Global Settings > Activity Stream Settings.

A Project Manager and Project Owner can update notification settings for work items in the Property Card for the project. You can only update notification settings for a project and not for individual work items.
