The Inbox is where you are able to find updates from all of the boards that you are subscribed to. It is a great way to stay up to date with all of the communication going on inside all of the boards that are relevant to you!
You can think of the inbox like a newsfeed you see on social media, showing all of the posts from the pages/people/groups which you choose to follow.
The bell notification on the other hand, is where you'll receive notifications of updates relating to you (e.g. where you were mentioned or when someone replied to your update).
How does it work?
You can access the inbox in 2 ways —through clicking on the monday logo at the top of the left pane or on the home icon at the top of the left pane - you'll see the Inbox in the top. The number indication next to the inbox icon reflects the number of unread updates in your inbox.
The Inbox is broken down by 'Open' updates and 'All Updates.' All unread updates will be displayed in "Open" and all read messages will be moved to "All Updates".
You can easily mark messages read or unread with the simple "checkmark" circle found to the right of the update.
How to filter within your inbox?
You can filter your inbox according to a range of options, which you'll see on right hand side of the inbox! This includes updates you were mentioned in, all updates on your account and updates you have bookmarked. Click here for more information on how to bookmark an update. Inbox updates is your regular inbox view with no filter added.
On the bottom right, you can filter your inbox updates according to board, meaning you can be more focused when reviewing what's new.
