System Wide Auto-Alerts
Within Project Insight's Add-Ons Administrators can set global alerts for all events using the Notification Configuration Add-On. As with any system sending auto-alerts, be careful what you wish for.
Administrators use this same section to set system wide auto-alerts for all users.
The most common usage for auto-alerts is an overdue notification or assignment notification. Users can choose to add more auto-alerts at their discretion.
If ever someone received an unwanted email notification, you can see why here: Receiving unwanted Email notifications

Each choice is not necessarily available for each alert type.
Choosing What to Notify the Alert Recipient About
