There are a total of five different notification mechanisms that can be employed to make sure that you get important updates when you want them. The seven are:
- Updates to your timeline in the right-hand pane
- Badges on rooms in the left-hand pane
- Badges in your browser tab or app icon badges (if you are using the desktop app)
- Desktop notifications (if you have the desktop app installed on your computer)
- Push notifications (if you have the Android or iOS versions installed)
By default, the type and number of notifications you receive is controlled by the priority setting you have assigned to the room. You can personalise your notifications by building your own notification scheme and assigning it to a priority level.
