Managing Notifications

Concord sends email notifications to alert Users of activity on the documents on which they have access. Each Concord User can customize the frequency of notifications and whether to receive notifications for activities completed by a colleague, external guest, or both. 

Note: A User's email notification settings are applied to all the Concord accounts tied to the user's email address, including personal accounts, company accounts, and subsidiaries.

Choose Activities 

With our notification manager, Users can decide whether to be notified about activity performed by their colleagues, external guests, or both.  The types of activities include: 

Email notifications requesting an approval or signature are sent as individual emails to the users or guests assigned to that task. These settings cannot be modified. 

To select notification preferences:

  1. Open your Settings by clicking on to the Settings Cog
  2. Select Preferences under Personal Settings
  3. Under Email Notifications menu, select (blue) or de-select the boxes beside your preferences Any changes are automatically saved and effective immediately.

Choose Format

Users can choose the format of the email notifications they wish to receive:

  • Individual email - document activity updates sent in real-time as individual email notifications
  • Recent activity digest - a single, daily recap of activity on documents performed within the last 24 hours

Note: Invitations to join a document notifications are always sent as individual emails and cannot be grouped into the daily digest. These invitation emails include a unique link to the document specifically for the recipient. This setting applies to both Concord Users and guests.
