In the world of the red dot, notifications have become very invasive, so I bet your team isn’t missing them, they’re actively ignoring them. In my experience best way is to actively encourage people to manage their notifications to reduce them to a minimum and then they’re more proactive in checking their work for updates.
Currently Monday defaults to ALL notifications, so people are getting bombarded via email, slack, inbox and bell. It’s too much. Configuring it to the bare minimum and then helping people work with notifications where they spend most of their time seems to be the best way. In our case, this is slack.
Having said that, Monday has to come up with a better way to personalise notifications and give more control. As mentioned, the stock options are quite spammy in general.
It’s a personal choice and there should be more of a personalised approach: some people like to keep on top of their work and find getting notified isn’t needed, others want to be notified of everything, not only tags.
