Managing your notifications

To make it easier to receive the notifications you're interested in, you can mark notifications as read, subscribe and unsubscribe from notifications, and watch and unwatch repositories.

Marking notifications as read

You can mark web notifications as read without reviewing them. If an update is made to the conversation, you'll receive a new notification. You can also mark read notifications as unread, so you can easily find them again later.

Saving notifications for later

You can save web notifications to follow up on them at a later time.

Subscribing to and unsubscribing from notifications

You can subscribe to individual conversations in issues, pull requests, and team discussions, even if you're not watching the repository or a member of the team where the conversation is occurring. If you're no longer interested in a conversation, you can unsubscribe or customize the types of notifications you receive.

Listing the issues and pull requests you're subscribed to

You can see an overview of all the issues and pull requests you're subscribed to, making it easier to navigate to conversations you're interested in but have not received recent notifications about.

Watching and unwatching releases for a repository

You can watch releases in a repository to receive notifications when a new release is published without receiving notifications about other updates to the repository. You can also unwatch releases if you no longer want to receive notifications for new releases in a repository.

Watching and unwatching team discussions

You can watch a team to receive notifications for team discussions. You can unwatch a team if you no longer want to receive notifications for that team's discussions.
