With the context menu command My notifications, users can opt to be notified by email when a chosen element undergoes changes or transitions to a specified state. No notification is sent to the user who changes the state or contents of a given element.
With version 8.2 and later, notifications are sent as system messages in the chat feature of objectiF RM’s messenger.
- Choose an element about which you would like to be notified about and open its context menu.
- Go to My notifications.
In its sub-menu, the top entry you’ll see is Notify when there is a new version available. Underneath you’ll see entries for all the possible states that the selected element can transition to.

To see which state an element has been configured to notify the user of when it reaches, look out for an icon with an envelope and a red cross. The state is referenced in the command description.
