Inboxes and Roles

Every user has an inbox of requests, items, and baselines. An inbox contains objects that are currently waiting on that user for further action. An object is added to a user's inbox when it is actioned to a state in which the user has a role to action it on to the next state. When the object is added to a user's inbox, the user automatically receives notification in an email message.

Whether an object appears in your inbox, and whether you can action it to the next state can depend on whether the relevant roles are optional or pending as described in Assigning Pending and Optional Roles.
