  1. Release notes
  2. Backlog will stop sending emails to inactive users


To reduce the workloads of both our customers’ email servers and our own, Backlog will disable emails for users who have not used Backlog in more than a year. To re-enable emails and start using Backlog again, just log in to Backlog and toggle your email settings accordingly.


Date of maintenance

October 21, 2021

Email settings targeted

The “Receive emails” checkbox found on the “Personal Settings” > “Emails” setting page will be disabled. We will not change any other email setting.
