To best inform you about upcoming events and to remind you of pending to-dos, Personio displays notifications on your dashboard and sends system e-mails.
If none of your employees should receive e-mail notifications from Personio, such as approval requests or reminders, you can globally deactivate all e-mail notifications under Settings > Company > Email notifications enabled.
In the following we will give you an overview on the different notification types and times sorted by the different occasions.
|Trigger of the notification||Who will be notified?||Notification type||When will the e-mail be sent?|

Please note that reminders for entire employee roles always appear on the dashboard of each employee of this role until they are deleted either individually or they expire automatically. Reminders that you receive before an event or on the same day are displayed on the dashboard until one day after the event in question. Reminders that are set for after an event automatically disappear from the dashboard one week after the reminder was displayed.
Open to-dos, on the other hand, are also displayed on the dashboard of all employees assigned to the corresponding role, but - as soon as someone has marked the to-do as completed - it is also removed for all others.
If you do not want to be notified for certain events via e-mail, you can deactivate this individually. Navigate to Personal settings > Notifications.
