Notifications Drawer

Notifications Drawer is a centralized space where you can monitor and take action on incoming notifications within Sprout Social’s web application. You can also set up custom preferences for specific notification types and delivery methods to create a personalized experience that meets the needs of your working style.



Notifications includes both Tasks and Approvals. Each individual notification displays detailed information, including the Group, type and which team member took action to trigger the notification, if applicable.

Notifications have two status states:

  • A blue background indicates no action has taken place on that particular notification.
  • A white background indicates that you’ve either clicked on the notification or have marked it as read.


Click on the overflow menu for notification options.


Issues refer specifically to alerts about profile connection problems; it could be an alert that a profile has been disconnected or a warning that a social profile will be disconnected soon.


Issues cannot be deleted and will remain in the Notifications Drawer until a user with appropriate administrative permission reauthorizes the profile. These are critical to your workflows; therefore, resolving them will prevent additional problems from surfacing.


Filter Notifications by Type in the NotificationsDrawer. 


Note: If you have one or more Groups on your Sprout Social account, Group Filters allow you to customize which Groups and corresponding notifications you want to see in the Notifications Drawer.
