If Mail notifications is checked, you will receive notifications about any event that occurs on the projects you belong to (issue added or edited, new document,...).

If it's unchecked, you will only receive notifications about the issues you're involved in (author or assignee) and about things you watch (eg. issues, forums).

My page

This page lets you display various blocks of information about your projects. By default only the following two blocks are enabled:
  • Issues assigned to me
    • providing a cross-project list of issues, which are assigned to the current user, showing the issue id's, projects, trackers and subjects with the current issue status appended between braces
  • Reported issues
    • providing a cross-project list of issues, which are reported by the current user, showing the issue id's, projects, trackers and subjects with the current issue status appended between braces
Each user can personalize the own "My page" by clicking on "Personalize this page". Then the user can choose which of the available blocks of information should be displayed or not.
The additional blocks besides the two default ones are:
  • Calendar
    • providing a cross-project weekly calendar overview
  • Documents

  • Watched issues
