Upsource 3.0 Help

Setting up e-mail notifications

Upsource users will probably want to be notified of different events going on in Upsource such as creating and closing reviews, assigning reviewers and creating new comments.

To configure Upsource to send out e-mail notifications:

  1. Click the settings icon Settings on the top right of the screen. The Administration view will open.
  2. Click Set up email notifications. You'll be redirected to the Settings form.
  3. Follow the instructions to fill out the form and configure SMTP connection.

To avoid clatter, Upsource aggregates events happening shortly one right after another, sending them in one notifcation message.

Each user can also customize the types of events he wants to be notified about using his personal Notifications settings, or disable e-mail notifications altogether.

Enabling users to add comments by e-mail

The mail system in Upsource is not limited to sending outgoing notifications. After you have configured outgoing e-mail, you can set up a dedicated mailbox, which will then be used by Upsource for receiving incoming mail. This feature lets Usource users participate in code review discussions without ever leaving their email program.

To configure Upsource to receive e-mail messages:

  1. Click the settings icon Settings on the top right of the screen. The Administration view will open.
  2. Click Set up "Add comment by email".
  3. On the Add comment by email page, specify your dedicated e-mail address and its settings, and tick the Enable "Add comment by email" checkbox.
  4. Click Save changes.
