  • View Bitrix24 pages in a separate application – you can only work in the Bitrix24 application without a browser: chats will be in one window, and other working tools in another.
  • Enable autorun on startup – Bitrix24 app will be automatically loaded when you turn on your computer.
  • Allow application to send anonymous diagnostic and usage data to Bitrix24 – to improve Bitrix24 app quality, it is important for us to know how the application works on different client hardware. Only anonymous information is collected, there is no reference to personal data in the report.

There are two modes of notifications.

Advanced mode allows you to make notification settings for various tools.

Email notifications are disabled by default in Bitrix24 Cloud version, but you can always enable them. Disabled notifications are not saved in the history.


You can configure options for video in group calls, microphone and webcam.

There are several setting options for group calls:

  • From all – video from all participants will be displayed in the call window.
  • From speakers – video will be shown from those who are currently speaking or have recently spoken.
  • Don't accept – all participants will have an avatar, no video.

After selecting the microphone and the webcam, you will see a microphone audio level indicator and a webcam image.
