How To Adjust Your Notification Settings in Connect Extension

I had a couple of people recently ask about adjusting their email notification preferences for Connect Extension, so I thought I'd share this with everyone! You have control over your own settings - how many or how few notifications you wish to receive.

1. On the navigation bar, hover over your name and choose Notifications from the drop-down menu. 

2. You'll come to the Notification Settings screen, where you'll see three tabs: Settings, Follows, and Group Follows.

On the Settings tab, you can check or uncheck Email Notifications and On-Site Alerts. You can also Suspend All Email Notifications across the entire site if you prefer. 

3. If, for example, you don't want to turn off all email notifications - just specific ones (i.e. "I still want to receive calendar events, but not blog posts"), you can click on the Follows and Group Follows tab to adjust what you would and would not like to receive. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. You can send me a private message here or shoot me an email at
