Subscriptions button

Click this button to display the E-mail Subscriptions for Project Log screen, which allows you to add new subscriptions and edit and delete existing subscriptions.

Email subscriptions enable Spectrum to monitor email folders and import email associated with a particular job to the job's Project Log in Project Management. Each user can set up subscriptions associating email folders with particular jobs. Spectrum will monitor each subscription and as new email appears in the subscribed folders, Spectrum will automatically import the email into the job's Project Log.

Spectrum will monitor active subscriptions whether or not the user is logged into Spectrum.
