Three types of actions trigger an email from DevResults.
1) New password: If someone resets your password, or you reset your own password, DevResults will send you an email. Occasionally these end up your spam filter -- please check there if you don't see an expected email.
2) Assigned task: If someone assigns you a task, an email notification will be sent to your external email address. You will also get a message in your DevResults inbox. To find your DevResults inbox, hover over your photo in the top right-hand corner of any DevResults page and select "Inbox".
On your user profile, you can select how frequently you'd like to get email notifications sent to your external email address.
From any DevResults page, hover over your photo or icon in the top right-hand corner and select "Edit profile".
Select the setting you'd like under "Preferences".
3) Message on Activity's Notes Tab: If someone posts a note in an activity's Notes tab, and you are assigned to that activity, you will get a message in your DevResults inbox as well as a copy sent to your external email address.
Users are assigned to activities on the Overview tab for each activity.
