Preferences Options



Navigation Settings

Show Submenu
Displays submenu items directly below the main navigation bar. This will increase the vertical height of the top area.

Show Project Path
Displays the current project path above the Project Navigator. The Project path also indicates existing Roadmaps.

Email Settings

Notifications by Email
Allows you to receive Agility notifications in your email. (You can also enable this feature in your Member Details view.) It is important to note that the system will not generate any automatic notifications to a member for actions that user takes themselves. For example, if a member has a subscription to generate a notification when the user is assigned a defect and the user creates and assigns a defect to his/herself, the system will not generate a notification (as it assumes that members are already aware of the actions they take themselves). Note that this feature is only available if configured in the SMTP Configuration settings.

Send Conversation Emails 
Allows you to receive email notifications from Conversations that mention you or that you are subscribed to. Note that this feature is only available if configured in the SMTP Configuration settings.

Notification Settings

Show Notification Icon
Displays an icon in the upper right corner next to your avatar when unread notifications are waiting for you.

Enable Active Alert
Shows a temporary toaster alert in the bottom right corner of the screen when new notifications arrive.

Report Settings

Include Weekends
Shows or hides weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) on time-based reports. Note that this affects all Agility reports. See Are weekends and holidays included in reports? for details.

Show Reports by Workitem Count
Configures Agility reports to show Workitem counts by default.
