A notification gets created each time you receive a new text message. MessageDesk can send this notification to you and your team in 3 different ways:

  1. In-app notifications / Desktop Notification (Only get notified when you're using the app)

  2. Email notifications (Get an email each time you receive a message and you're not currently logged in)

  3. Push Notifications (Get notifications on your mobile device each time you receive a new message

By default, all three of these notifications are turned on. If you wish to turn off notification simply go to settings -> notification settings and adjust them there.
