There are lots of ways Watson Workspace can notify you. Watson Workspace can send email and mobile notifications when you are away from the apps and desktop notifications when you're viewing another space, or working in another application.
By default, you'll be notified every time something gets posted to one of your spaces. You can adjust your notification settings to mute notifications for all spaces, unsubscribe to email notifications or turn off sounds.
There is also in-app awareness to let you know when there are new messages in other spaces or farther down in the conversation stream.
Note: Currently, notification settings are set per device. Settings that are synchronized across devices and space settings are coming soon.
