Changing email notifications

Data.world sends out two types of emails:

  • General platform emails

  • Project and dataset updates and requests for access

Modifying the subscription settings for each type of email requires a different method.

General platform emails

This category of e-mails includes the types that data.world may send to all users. Examples are feature updates, weekly Data Digests, and our Blog Newsletter.

To unsubscribe from these, follow the Update your email preferences link at the bottom of any of those e-mails. From this page, you can choose certain categories of e-mails you would like to unsubscribe from, or select Unsubscribe me from all mailing lists at the bottom of that page.

Project and dataset updates and requests for access

For any data.world project or dataset that you are a contributor to, you will by default receive email notifications any time that project or dataset is updated (which can include when a new comment is left, a new Insight is created, or new files are added) or a request for access is submitted.

For a specific dataset or project, to add an additional email in addition to the dataset/project admin to receive these notifications:

  1. Go to the dataset or project of your choosing

  2. Click Settings

  3. Under the General tab, in the section labeled Additional notification recipient, specify an email address (like dataowner@yourcompany.com) to receive dataset notifications. Dataset/project admins will continue to receive emails. Specify only one additional email address.
