Notifications alert you when something occurs in a program that requires your attention. Crowdcontrol offers a tailor-made notification experience allowing you to customize when and where you’d like to be notified. Choose to get notifications when:

Updating General Activity Settings

You have the power to decide if and how you’d like to receive general activity notifications. General notification includes team notes, replies from researchers, submission state changes, and rewards paid out a researcher.

To adjust your general activity notification settings, go to your Notifications settings. Choose to receive general activity notifications in-app, both in-app and email, or not at all.


Updating Email Notification Settings

You can update your email notification settings to receive alerts when a submission changes to a specific status. To adjust your notification settings, go to your Notification settings and select the submission statuses you would like to be alerted about.


Updating Automated Subscription Settings

You can manage when you are automatically subscribed to a submission based upon a specific action. Choose to be automatically subscribed to a submission when:

  • You edit or comment.
  • You are @bugcrowd or assigned.
  • A submission is moved to a specific state.

To adjust your automated subscription settings, go to your Notifications settings. Select the particular settings that fit your needs.


Get Email Notification for Activity on Subscribed Submissions: In order to receive notifications on the submissions you are subscribed to, you need to enable the Activity on subscribed submissions option in the email notification settings.
