My customer want to shorter interval of pop-up alert.

There I can only see priority and no interval.
According to our test. the interval seems to be 10 minutes regard less of priority.
So, this setting is same as email notification (default is 600 seconds) but I do not see the connection between it.

Please let me know if anyone have expertise for this area.
Thank you!

  I would advise against doing notifications more quickly than this.  In fact, I would have the interval be even longer in many cases.  The notifications are driven by RSS feeds being processed for the most recent events on the system.  The feeds in question will run queries against the backend database.  If you do these too frequently, they just add load to the backend database.  The question to ask is this, "What BUSINESS need is this serving?".  For many customers, they just want the feeling that they are being notified in "real time".  Having notification like this doesn't trigger any other work, it's primarily a communication to encourage collaboration.
  An interval of 600 seems like a good choice to me.

I'll add that you can configure your feed refresh interval from Team Dashboard view. The feed for each project area can be configured for different intervals.
