About Notifications


During an open Review, the B Lab Review Team will need to ask questions and verify your responses. To expedite the process, the application will display a Notifications View. In several places throughout the application one will see a "bell" icon along with a red/white number that indicates the total number of unread Notifications you have. Notifications are created when a Comment is left on a Question or a Task during an open Review.


To see your Notifications, click Notifications in your navigation. The view will be divided into two sections, Read and Unread. It's important to note that a Notification is associated with either a Question or Task so what you will see in the Notification View is either a Question or a Task. You can easily click to expand a Question/Task and see the Comments section. You can then type up and send along your reply.


Your Company's Certification Lead (designated via Settings -> Team Members) will receive a Notification any time someone Comments on a Question or Task on their company's assessment.

Who at B Lab is notified and when

Who at B Lab gets notified about a Comment is based on the Review Stage.  For Questions, when a company adds a comment, the notification is sent to the B Lab Review Team based the currently active Review Stage:
