Can we have an option to disable email notifications?

dlivitzdlivitz Member, Broadie

Hi Firecloud Team,

Would it be possible to set a checkbox somewhere to not send notifications when workspaces are shared with me?

I don't want to filter all emails from firecloud, but I also don't want to have an inbox full of these notifications.

Thank you!

    Hi Dmitri, I believe the product team is working on some redesign for notification policies; I'll bring this to their attention to include in their deliberations. I expect it should be possible to set up a "notification preferences" control panel of some sort.

    Hi Dimitri! There is a new Notification preference page where you can control this now! Hope this helps!

    I finally found a tiny little bell icon on the workspace summary page to turn off the "new data has been added" emails. This is happening for a lot of workspaces for me, all under the same... owner? Whatever the level above workspace is. It would be nice to have a way to turn off all the "new data" notifications at once.

    Thank you for the suggestion @gauthier, I will definitely pass that on to our development teams. I can see it getting tedious to turn off individual notifications for a large number of workspaces.
