Managing Notifications

The calendar administrator can get an overview of active notifications in the calendar Settings, including change Notifications delivered by email, Daily Agenda delivered by email, and change notifications posted to Slack channels. This allows the administrator to set up notifications even when the notification function is disabled for non-administrator users, and remove notifications when an employee leaves the organization.

Please note a user account is required to set up Event Reminders which alert users of upcoming events.

How to enable user to subscribe or sign up for notifications globally

  1. Click on the blue menu button and select Settings.
  2. You will be directed by default to General Settings page.
  3. Where it says Notifications, you will tick the ENABLE USER SIGNUP box.
