Discover Notification Recipients

To indicate the notification recipients, Collaborator puts the following keywords at the notification name’s beginning:

Recipient Description
Author The author of the review, for which the event is generated. The author is also called review creator.
User All participants of the review (except for the author).
List All participants of the review (except for the author) plus the email address (or mailing list) specified by the Notification List setting of Collaborator. Using these notifications are convenient for notifying multiple users, including those users who are not mentioned in the participant list of a review.

The User NNNN notifications and List NNNN notifications are fired on the same events. If the Notification List setting is not blank (contains some e-mails), Collaborator triggers the List NNNN notifications. Otherwise it triggers the User NNNN notifications.

Reviewer All users with the Reviewer role on the review.
Poke The user, who is poked (that is, notified explicitly).

Events Description

The drop-down list at the top of the settings page displays notification in alphabetical order. The following is a list of notifications, organized by type.
