Configure Notifications

Receive email, browser and mobile app push notifications.


Notification settings can be configured by clicking the person icon in the top right of Avochato and then “Edit Profile”. Notifications are configured per user, not per account.

However, note that certain settings within the account under “Settings” > “Convo Management” may impact behavior for notifications:

  • Private Conversations: if this setting is enabled, notifications will be isolated to conversations that are assigned to a specific user.
  • Managers See All Conversations: if this setting is enabled, managers will receive inbox notifications for all active conversations.

Browser Notifications

Browser notifications to be received from Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and other browsers can be turned on under “Edit Profile” as well, and the following options are available in Avochato:

Check the boxes on your desired notifications and hit “Save” in the top right corner.

Note: in order to receive browser notifications, you need to have a browser tab scoped to your Avochato inbox(es). If you have multiple Avochato inboxes, you will not receive browser notifications for all inboxes unless you have a tab open for each inbox.


If you are having issues with browser notifications, it’s possible your operating system or browser is not configured to accept notifications for both banner alerts and sounds. Make sure that your operating system and browser are configured to accept both sounds and banner alerts:
