Notifications allow you to know when new activities (Pull Requests or discussions) happen on models, datasets, and Spaces belonging to users or organizations you are watching.
By default, you’ll receive a notification if:
- Someone mentions you in a discussion/PR.
- A new comment is posted in a discussion/PR you participated in.
- A new discussion/PR or comment is posted in one of the repositories of an organization or user you are watching.
By default, you’ll be watching all the organizations you are a member of and will be notified of any new activity on those.
You can also choose to get notified on arbitrary users or organizations. To do so, use the “Watch” button on their HF profiles. Note that you can also quickly watch/unwatch users and organizations directly from your notifications settings.
Unlike Github or similar services, you cannot watch a specific repository. You must watch users/organizations to get notified about any new activity on any of their repositories. The goal is to simplify this functionality for users as much as possible and to make sure you don’t miss anything you might be interested in.
In your notifications settings page, you can choose specific channels to get notified on depending on the type of activity, for example, receiving an email for direct mentions but only a web notification for new activity on watched users and organizations. By default, you’ll get an email and a web notification for any new activity but feel free to adjust your settings depending on your needs.
Note that clicking the unsubscribe link in an email will unsubscribe you for the type of activity, eg direct mentions.
You can quickly add any user/organization to your watch list by searching them by name using the dedicated search bar. Unsubscribe from a specific user/organization simply by unticking the corresponding checkbox.
