Introducing notifications!

Our first update to the Insite Teams beta is now live on all platforms. We have received some great feedback so far, some of which has been incorporated into this update along with some additional features and some further bug fixes.

The most prominent features of this update are notification support and the ability to tag project users to assignees. These features work hand in hand by notifying users when they are assigned an item as well as notifying them of updates to those items. This is the tip of the iceberg for features related to linking assignees. Keep reading to find out more about or intentions for the next few updates!
