You may have certain preferences when it comes to how/when you would like to be notified. In a way, it's almost like Goldilocks and the three bears. (one is too many, one is too few, and one is just right)

We'll go into more details about the following notifications below:

To update these notifications, navigate to User settings --> Notifications.

But first, let's review the difference between two tabs in the notifications section: settings and watching.

Watching gives you a list of streams and you'll be able to choose which streams you will be notified of changes. You'll also have the option to auto-watch all streams.

Settings are the place to update specifics about your notification methods. First, you'll be able to decide the channel you want to receive notifications from:

After that you can set up the specifics for each type of notification:

Fellow digest

It's a weekly or daily summary with an overview of your day/week and what you have in Fellow. This can be send via Slack or email.

This includes:

  • Meetings

  • Feedback Requests

  • Action Items


You'll also be able to specify what changes in Notes you are notified about. Whether an action item is assigned to you, or if the due date changed, etc. These notifications will be present in the main notifications panel.


Specify when you would like to be notified about comments. This could be when someone adds a comment to a stream. Or when someone replies to one of your comments. These notifications will be present in the main notifications panel.


For feedback, decide how you would like to receive this notifications. You'll have the option to receive notifications via Slack, MS Teams, email, or a combination.

Upcoming 1-on-1 Reminders

For upcoming 1-on-1s, you will be able to choose where you get the notifications (email, Slack, or both). And you'll also be able to choose how long ahead of the meeting you would like to be notified. This notification will prompt you and the other person to add to the agenda or review any open talking points.

If you have a lot of 1-on-1s and only want to be notified about specific ones, you'll have the option to as well.

Objectives [Enterprise only]

If you are using Objectives, you can customize your notifications to determine when you are notified. These notifications will show up in the notifications panel. These notifications will be present in the main notifications panel.

Section headers

With sections, there is an option to make the filling out the section a required action. Decided how you would like to receive these notifications whenever you are required to do these actions.
