The Notification Center is designed to act as an inbox within the Emarsys Platform. According to your notification settings the Notification Center can send various types of notifications. A notification is a short message that informs the users in the most effective way either in short toast messages, or emails, notifications and system alerts to acknowledge changes and act accordingly.
Setting up your notifications
On the Notifications panel you can customize and set up your notifications to adjust to your needs in the following options:
- Filter: Set up filters to the notification sources and critical messages.
- Settings button: Set up receiving global or custom notifications.
Filtering the notification source
Open the Notifications and click the Filter drop-down list to set the source of your notifications in either of the following ways:
- Enter the name of the product or feature you intend to monitor and receive notifications, or
- scroll the list and check the required item. Here you can also remove them.
Optionally, you can set here with the check-box to display only the critical notifications. A notification is marked as critical when business-critical functions are affected due to a process not working as anticipated.
To open the Notification Settings page in the Notification Center you can either click the
- Settings button, or the
- three dots next to a notification message.
You can also open the Notification Settings from the email notifications you receive, if you subscribed.
In the Notification Settings page you can select these options from the left menu:
Global notification settings
The notifications you set up here are handled as default settings, unless the notification source is defined differently.
To set up and receive global notification messages, proceed as follows:
1. Select the Global Settings category from the left menu.
2. In the Global Notification Settings pane under Notifications use the radio button to display either
- critical notifications, or
- non-critical notifications.
3. Here, you can subscribe, (or unsubscribe) to receive emails about critical, non-critical notifications.
4. Click Save Settings in the top right corner.
For customizing feature-specific notification settings, see Custom notification settings.
To subscribe to email notifications go to the Notification Settings page and in the Global Notification Settings, select the E-mail me about critical notifications checkbox.
The Notification Center can notify you via emails about the critical (important) notifications containing
- a short description of the issue,
- a link to the Notification panel,
- and optionally, you can change email preferences (unsubscribe) at the end of the email message.
The Notification Center can update you on system-level changes via real-time "toast" notifications at the lower-right corner of the Emarsys Platform. Toast messages include
- a short description of the occurred problem or the latest updates in one sentence,
- and the three dots which opens the reported issue.
Custom notification settings
The Custom notification settings enable you to have custom-tailored notification setups specified to a local feature set or a use case of a category within the Platform.
To set up and receive custom-tailored messages proceed as follows:
1. Select a Notifications category group from the left menu.
2. On the Notification Settings pane choose the Use custom settings option.
3. Check, if the required checkboxes are selected under notifications to display.
4. In the User Settings use the radio buttons to receive either
- notifications only for your user account, or
- notifications for any user in this customer account.
5. Optionally, at Email Notifications you can set up to receive emails about the critical notifications. You can also unsubscribe from email notifications.
