    We are taking some time to optimize your experience while using Atarim.

    For 3.9.2, we have made some significant improvements to the way you navigate the app, optimizing the way API's are called and displaying the nav menu while inside collaboration.


    We've also released an integration with Monday and some bug fixes. See the full list below.

  10. Notification Bell 🛎️

    New Feature
    Notification Bell

    At the bottom of your nav bar, you'll see a new icon, the notification bell 🛎️. When you click this, it will expand a sidebar which will contain notifications of what's been happening inside your Atarim Dashboard (by being assigned to a website, you'll receive notifications from it!)


    This makes it super easy to stay on top of all of the tasks that are coming in, and not only that, when you click on a notification, you're taken to it inside your inbox. We keep the notification sidebar on screen too, so you can quickly flick through all of them, and get to your work even quicker!
