If you want to prevent Procore from sending emails to all recipients when an event occurs, place a mark in the Disable Email checkbox in this column for the desired event.

If you want to prevent Procore from sending emails to all recipients for when Ball In Court responsibility shifts to a different user, click the Disable Email box for the Ball In Court Shift event. Important! Please note that disabling this setting will NOT disable the automatic BIC shift emails that are sent when an RFI is moved to the 'Open' state. 

If you want to send email only to the newly added group member, place a mark in the Distribution Group checkbox for the Distribution Member Added event. This is the default setting.

If you want to send an email only to the new assignee, place a mark in the Assignees checkbox for the Reassigned event. This is the default setting.
