FYI: Notifications

0 (0votes)

Your Notifications feed in the header bar provides you with real time alerts about updates and activity that are important to you, they can be seen no matter what page you happen to be on.

Track your notifications using the exclamation mark icon in the header at the top of your screen. When a new notification comes in, you are alerted in two ways.

  1. An alert appears in the lower left corner of your screen with a summary of the notification you just received.
  2. A number appears next to the exclamation mark, indicating that you have an unseen notification. If other notifications arrive, that number increments automatically to accurately reflect your new updates. The image below shows a user with seven new notifications.

You can also view your notifications in full page format by going to your My Account (also found in the header menu). 

When you are ready to view and interact with your notifications, click the exclamation mark icon to view a drop-down list of recent updates. You can then select a given notification to see it in more detail, or click 'View all' at the top or bottom of the list to leave the page you are on and open the Notifications page in a full window.
