Notifications are gentle reminders about conversations or events in Twist, like when you’re added to a new team.

  • Threads only: You’ll receive notifications for threads that arrive in your Inbox, but you won’t get any for messages sent to you.
  • Messages only: You’ll receive notifications for messages sent to you, but you won’t get any for threads that arrive in your Inbox.
  • @Mentions and 1-on-1 messages only: You’ll only receive notifications for threads that you’re mentioned in and messages sent to you directly.
  • @Mentions only: You’ll only receive notifications for threads that you’re mentioned in.
  • 1-on-1 messages only: You’ll only receive notifications for messages sent to you directly.
