Improved RMS notification settings

Customize when and where you receive notifications across your Notebook related activity!

Sharing and collaboration related email notifications can be overwhelming, making it difficult to separate signal from the noise.

We’ve introduced more control over your RMS focused notifications, allowing you to fine tune the notifications that are most important to you and your team. You can access these settings from Notebook Preferences as demonstrated here.

For users migrating from the existing Notebook to the new Notebook experience, all the settings available currently will be migrated as it is. The newly added settings will be enabled by default.
