Trello has links to Notifications in a number of places but whenever I click on them it simply says

No Notifications

What is the intended purpose of the Notifications and where do they come from?

Notifications contains a list of changes that are likely to impact you or require actions. These include:

  • Getting assigned to a card
  • Being mentioned in a card through an @ message
  • Having a card you're assigned to altered in a significant way (moved, archived, and so on)
  • Being invited to a board

There may be other things that result in you getting a notification, but those are the ones that I see on a regular basis.

I'm having the same result. I'm subscribed to board, list, card but even with changes within the card or moving to another list, I still get no notifications. – user25087 Sep 30 '12 at 14:45
