User notification preferences in UI16

User notification preferences in UI16

You can set your own notification preferences, including personal subscriptions and channels (devices) for receiving them. All users can set these preferences through the Notifications tab of the System Settings window.

With the Notifications tab, you can:

  • Use a global switch to enable or disable all your notifications.
  • Enable or disable a particular channel for receiving notifications, as well as create, edit, or delete channels.
  • Control the notifications that you receive and apply conditions to restrict notification delivery.
  • Create personal notifications, which are subscriptions to notifications that are important to you.

Comparison between notification preferences in UI16 and earlier interfaces

In new and upgraded instances that use the UI16 interface, the System Settings window is the central location for managing your notification preferences. The Notification Preference User Interface plugin (com.glide.notification.preference.ui) is activated by default.

Figure 1. Notification preferences in UI16
Examples of notification preferences in UI16 (System Settings window) and UI15 and earlier interfaces
In UI15 and earlier interfaces:
  • Users set notification preferences through the Notification Preferences link in the User form (Self service > My Notification Preferences).
  • Admins created user devices and set notification preferences for users through the Notification Preferences link in the User form, accessed through the User Administration module (User Administration > Users).
    Note: Admins can revert to the UI15 notification preferences interface by setting the glide.notification.preference.UI.enabled property to false.
