Trello notifications for direct messages only

Hi! We are a small agency that currently uses Trello as a project management tool for all our jobs. Half of my creative team feels that they get TOO many notifications from Trello, therefore, they just ignore everthing. My question:

If you turn off your Trello notifications, will you still recieve a notification if someone direct messages on the card?

Is there a way to select the type of notifications you get? That way, only the relevant notifications are being seen?

Thank you!

Hello Stefani

If you unsubscribe from a board, list or card, you'll only receive certain notifications

  • You are mentioned in a comment.
  • You are added to a card, board, or team.
  • You are mentioned in a checklist item.
  • One of your boards is closed.
  • When someone makes you an admin of a board or team

But there's not a way to pick and choose what you'll get.  See more at

Thank you so much Matthew! That is very helpful!!
