Notifications provide updates about the activities performed in your Pics.io account by your teammates. They are sent when an event happens in Pics.io account (asset is uploaded, a comment is left, a task is assigned etc.). 

How notifications work?

Notifications in Pics.io help you keep track of changes made in your Pics.io account. Users can configure notifications settings in their Pics.io account based on personal preferences. 

You can be notified about any activities that happen in your Pics.io account. For example, an asset is uploaded to your Pics.io library by your teammate, so you get a notification about this event.

Notification Center
