Managing your email notification settings in Abacus
This page in your 'Account & Settings' tab gives you the option to opt-in or opt-out of notifications related to your Abacus account activity.
Each check box displayed in the image below allows you to select your preferred notifications channel. Depending on the account activity, you'll have three options for notifications:
- Email: sent to your primary email address in Abacus
- Push: Notifications via our mobile app
- Slack: applies only if you have the Slack integration set up
Please note: the only notification that is not optional is an email notification when your expense is approved or denied by an admin. This is because admin approval triggers expense reimbursement, and this is how you'll know when to expect your payment (a few days after you receive this email!).
Select the boxes to the left of any of the options if you’d like to opt-in to a notification.
All users can opt in to the following notifications:
- “Your expense is approved or denied”: receive an update when the expense you’ve submitted has been approved or denied
