Sending email notifications from GitHub organisations to different emails

Tuesday, February 1st, 2022 at 12:37 am

I’m part of a few organisations on GitHub and had one email address for notifications. This annoyed me as I didn’t want company notifications to my personal account as I couldn’t answer these. As it turns out, you can set up several email addresses in your GitHub account. In settings, go to Access > Emails and you can add more than one address.

If you then go to the `Notifications` settings of GitHub and scroll all the way down to `Custom Routing`, you can define which organisation should send notifications to which email account.

Thanks to my colleague Anton Ross for showing me this!
