Email Notification Overview

A team member or customer becomes subscribed to a feature when they create it, vote on it, or comment on it. At that point they are able to unsubscribe if they wish.

Team members

By default, you and your team members will all receive email notifications when:

  • A new feature is created in your Receptive account
  • A feature they are subscribed to has changed status
  • A feature they are subscribed to has been commented on

Customers

By default, your customers will all receive email notifications when:

  • A feature they are subscribed to has changed status
  • A feature they are subscribed to has been commented on

Global

You have three account-wide options under your settings page:

  1. Disable notification emails to customers: this switches off customer emails globally. Use with care as users can always unsubscribe themselves from Receptive feature notifications.
  2. Disable auto-login links in customer emails: if you're using Receptive internally only, you can still let them know you're making progress on the features they've requested. Just select this option to remove all of the links that log your customers directly into their Receptive dashboard. 
  3. Disable notification emails to team members: this switches off team emails globally. Use with care as team members can always unsubscribe themselves from Receptive feature notifications.

How to edit team member notifications

Using Gmail? Clean up your inbox with filters and labels. See how to set them up here.

As a team member, there are two methods through which you can edit your email notifications:

  1. Through the email
  2. In the Receptive app

1) Through the email

You can use a link in Receptive emails to edit your own email notifications.

Do this by clicking the “Manage Email Preferences” link in the footer of any Receptive notification email.

How to edit customer notifications

Customer notifications can either be edited through the email footer link (by themselves) or through the user settings (by a team member).

1) Through the email

This is how customers can edit their own notifications.

In the footer of the email is a link titled "Manage email preferences".

Click that and you'll see a page with various checkboxes.

You can then use these to turn each type of notification on or off.

2) In the Receptive app

This is how a team member can edit notifications for a customer.

Head to "Customers" on the left-hand navigation.
