Configure Notification Options

Notifications allow you to stay up-to-date on everything important happening inside of your courses. Settings can be configured so that you receive different types of notifications when something important happens. Activity stream, Popup notification, Email and Alert badge notification are the four main types of notifications that are available. Note that your site administrator may disable some message outputs, so you may not see all of the options listed below.

Configure notification options

  1. Open your profile.
  2. Select Preferences and Messaging.
  3. Select the notification output type you want to receive, and when you want to receive it, for each item listed.

    You can select When I’m logged in and When I’m offline for each output type. If you don't check When I'm offline for Activity stream messages, Popup and Alert badge notifications, events that occurred while you were offline don't display when you log back in.
