Email Notification and Preferences

Version 1

    Getting too many emails from Gatherhere? Not getting enough email notifications and now you are missing key updates?

    When you click the follow > inbox button at a particular page, you will receive email notifications when the group you are following has an update. But did you know that you can set your preferences for email notifications for the Inbox function? Hint: You must be logged in to the Gatherhere Community to update your inbox settings


    Go to your Preferences page which is accessed by clicking your avatar icon.

    • From the preferences page, you can check or uncheck Email Notifications for each type of activities.
    • If you have downloaded the Jive app and prefers accessing Gatherhere through the app, you can adjust the mobile notification setting on the preference page as well.



    Note that when all email notifications are checked, you will get an email every time an activity is updated in the group that you followed. To prevent it from becoming overwhelming, we suggest that you only check the ones that you want to receive email about and uncheck the rest. (Note that it is important to click the check button for the "Inbox: Direct social mentions" or you might miss direct interactions unless you are checking the Gatherhere Community every day.


    Use the settings below to guide you with the email notifications:
