Creating a Notification Subscription Alert

This feature is available in Catalyst, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions.



From the Subscriptions page, you can subscribe to work item events so you receive notification alerts changes impact your work items.

For example, if you want to know when a backlog item is assigned to you, you can set up a subscription to notify you. You could also set up one to let you known when a when a backlog item is closed, or even when the status of a defect changes. This way, you can keep track of the things interest you the most. 

You will not receive notifications for changes you make, only for changes made by others.
