    Due date reminders

    For calendar events, milestones, issues and tasks, we send you a reminder on 7, 3 and 1 day prior to the due date. On overdue tasks, issues and milestones, we send a you reminder on 1 and 8 days past the due date.

    Coming soon: Reminders for tasks’ start dates, which will be available under Freedcamp’s Business and Enterprise plans.

    Freedcamp Updates

    Email notifications are fully customizable in each project that you've created or joined. There are four types of notification settings which are available namely; (1) Full, (2) Default, (3) Minimal and (4) None.

    'Full' will send notifications on all newly added content. 'Default' will send notifications when you havespecifically assigned a task, milestone, etc. or if new content is added to something that you have subscribed to. 'Minimal' is very similar to 'Default' with the exception of, if you will add a comment to an item you are not following, Freedcamp will not auto-subscribe you to it. 'None' - no emails will be sent.

    Even with email notifications fully disabled, you can still follow all the updates in Freedcamp with Notifications page.

    You can also use your email client to further fine tune email notifications. For example, you can allow only new comments to reach your main Inbox and stash all other updates in a separate folder. Check here for more details. 

    Responding to Freedcamp Updates

    We allow you to post new comments by replying to Freedcamp’s email notifications. Simply hit 'Reply' button and type your message above "===== Reply Above =====" line (1).

    Remove all text your email client adds to reply email automatically such as time stamps and email signatures, if you do not want them to be posted in Freedcamp (2).

    We do not only parse attachments in your replies, but we also parse all inline images, upload them to Freedcamp and add inline to your comment.

    Below you can see a reply containing one file attached and one inline image copy/pasted to my message in GMail:

    Now you can see how it was parsed and posted to Freedcamp via email. You have your inline image in place and shown as an attachment (1). Your RAR file is also attached (2).

    You can also see that all my links in the email were conveniently converted making them easy to follow from Freedcamp (3).


    To change the email notifications settings, navigate to "My Account" (1) and click on the "Notifications Settings" tab (2).

    You can also access from here:

    (3) Daily digest - daily email outlining all the updates of your projects made a day before.
