GitHub notifications can be frustrating if they are not setup for your personal preferences. For example, you may not want to receive an email everytime an automated GitHub action runs against the repo. To configure how many and how you receive your GitHub notifications follow this process.

  1. From GitHub Profile Dropdown | Settings | Notifications
    Figure: First navigate to your notifications
  2. Customise the settings as you see fit.

  • Dependabot alerts x5
  • GitHub Actions x1
  • Email notification preferences | Pull Request pushes x1
