  • Changes on criteria and board formula settings.

Notifications help you to:

  • Keep you reminded on any issues that need to be evaluated for prioritization. 
  • Create a prioritization habit. 
  • Enhance your collaborative experience in Ducalis.

The notifications are received as emails or as  messages to your Slack channels (if you integrate Slack with Ducalis).

Slack Notifications

Notifications received in Slack are public reminders, they are received by everyone at the same time in a Slack channel. You can choose the day that you want to receive them, for example a day or two before your planning meeting so that everyone is reminded to complete their evaluation before the planning meeting.  

The reminder comes as a single message containing:

  1. The number of issues each user has to evaluate.
  2. The number of questions a user received from other users.
  3. Appreciation message for each user who has evaluated all the issues.
