  • Subscriber: the user who is subscribed to the object. You can subscribe as many project users to an object as you want.
  • Assignee: the user whom the object is assigned to. This user can be changed overtime depending on the processing state of the object.
  • Creator: the user who created the object.

  • For system events, you can only modify event name and recipients and activate/deactivate the events, but not the email template.
  • When you perform the following actions, a single stream of emails might be sent out upon notification settings. To prevent any confusion, the email notifications are disabled for the actions by default but they can be activated if needed by ticking on option Send out notification emails.
    • Batch Edit (Requirement, Test Case, Test Run and Defect)
    • Batch Approve (Test Case)
    • Import (Requirement, Test Case and Automation Test Executions)
