How to stay up to date in Stackfield

Base: The functions "My Week" and "Everything", in conjunction with individual filters, provide an overview of all news in the shortest possible time. A well thought-out structure is supportive.

To ensure that you always have an overview of what is most important to you, you can create additional order and organize yourself with a few settings.

(Don't) Let me notify you

Notifications help you keep track of changes. Via "My Account" and the tab "Notifications" you can see the current settings.

Check notes on activities in the sidebar

New activities will always be displayed to you without time delay by hints directly in Stackfield, next to the respective room and possibly in "My Week".

General changes in a room are indicated by a circle next to the room. For "Direct Messages" and other relevant activities, which also appear in your "My Week" notification center, a red circle will also appear.

Sidebar hints only appear when changed by someone other than yourself and disappear when they have been read (e.g. even if you are in the same room in the module).

Notifications outside of Stackfield

You can also receive notifications outside of Stackfield, via push notification on your desktop (browser or desktop app) or mobile phone (mobile app) and via E-mail.

To prevent you from being flooded with countless notifications you can individually set in which cases, when and how you want to receive notifications. In addition, you can mute certain rooms to exclude them from the system and pause them altogether. Possible options are shown here.


For Messages (for yourself)

You can have comments and "Direct Messages" reminded to you. This function can be activated and individually set via the button with the "three dots" (visible by mouseover, i.e. select the desired message with the mouse pointer) next to the respective chat. The reminder appears at "My Week", in the list of your notifications, at the selected time.

For events / tasks (for yourself and/or other persons)

A reminder is also possible for events and tasks. You will find the setting "Reminder" in the opened element itself. For tasks this is only possible with the selection "Due to" and the option "From - To" or "Date and time", because an exact time can be stored there. It is important to store a person (for participants / assigned), only in this way can the person be reminded.

Add / remove as follower

You can add / remove other users or yourself to items (e.g. tasks) as follower. Within the task, via the button with the "three dots", you can confirm the desired person(s) with a check mark at the option "follower". Note: Persons who have created the item or have been assigned to it / participate in it are automatically follower.

Subscribe to task

The subscribed entries appear at "My Week", in the list of your notifications and in the sidebar with a red circle next to the room.


A message / comment / discussion / document / file with a star can be added to your favorites in the communication module or in the "Direct Messages". This can be done by right-clicking on the desired entry and selecting "Add to Favorites".

Hide empty room groups

Empty room groups (e.g. if not a member of one of the rooms of the room group) can be hidden individually by each user. This can be done using the button with the "three dots" next to any room group. The button only becomes visible when you are on a room group with the mouse.

Hide rooms in a room group

If the rooms of a room group are not used frequently, they can be hidden from the sidebar simply by clicking on the "down arrow". The arrow next to the room group then changes its orientation (symbol: "arrow left"). With a click on the arrow, the rooms can be unfolded again.
