Portal notifications

Abstract

Do not surprise your users! Learn how to add notifications about imminent or planned activities, such as upcoming software updates.

The system administrator can add notifications about imminent or planned activities, such as upcoming software updates. The Manage notifications tile is usually not guarded by any special permissions. The Portal notifications tile needs to share at least one Role with the currently logged in user, in order for the Manage notifications panel to be accessed.
