Skylight is an online business management tool which sends out notifications when actions or steps are taken by others on your account and are related to you, e.g. adding a task, assigning a task to a user, when users are added to a project, or when replying to a comment.
This helps you to keep track of the actions or whatever is happening across your Skylight account.
Notifications help you improve business online collaboration
To check what notifications you have, just hover your mouse over the 'Notifications' section at the top-right of your screen, as soon as you hover your mouse pointer a pop-up box will appear as shown in the image below:
Any kind of action is displayed in the notification pop-up box, for example someone leaving a comment or sending a message via email. By default, this pop-up box shows you the three most recent notifications sent to you from Skylight. To view the older notification click the 'see more' option.
