How do I set up my notifications?

By default, Workbench gives you the most asked for notifications. Where it goes from there is up to you.

Use the User Notifications checklist to make a list of the notifications you're interested in receiving. You can refer to this during the setup process.

The setup process is pretty simple. If you've ever created a rule in an email program, then this looks familiar:

  • First, select the event to watch, like incidents or investigations. Let's say Investigation.

  • Second, select an action, like opened or closed. (Investigation is closed.)

  • (Optional) If +Add Condition appears, you can refine your notification by selecting a general condition, like reason to close, and then selecting a specific condition, like possible policy violation. (Investigation is closed and the reason to close is a possible policy violation.) Conditions narrow your notifications down to specific issues you care the most about.

That's all there is to it! Workbench sends the selected notifications to you through email as events occur.

You can view, add, edit, and delete your notifications. Admins can do the same for the users in their organization. Click below to jump to the task at hand:

Viewing your notifications

To view your notifications:

  1. From any screen, click the green square with your initials in the top right corner.

Viewing user notifications for your organization

Admins can view and work with the user notification settings for all the users in their organization. This can be useful for onboarding to make sure the new user has the appropriate notifications.


You must be an Org Admin to make changes in this area.
