In-App Notifications provide you with important information regarding product updates and Octopi announcements.
Before you begin
The permission that is required to access Notifications is enabled by default for users in an Admin role.
If you would like other users in your organizations to receive notifications, turn on the Notifications: Read permission for their respective roles.
New notifications alert
The Notification Bell is always available on the top bar in Octopi.
When you see the red dot displaying on the Notification Bell, that means there is a new unread notification available. Click the bell to view a short excerpt of the new message.
Reading notification messages
In the Notifications dropdown panel., click Read More to view the full message in the Notifications inbox.
After reading a notification message it will no longer appear in the Notifications dropdown panel.
Mark as read
If you'd prefer to clear a notification out of your Notifications dropdown panel without reading the full message, you can click Mark as read.
You can always read the notification later in the Notifications inbox.
Viewing past notifications
Even if you have no unread notifications, you can click View all Notifications to navigate to the Notifications inbox page. Here you can read the all past messages, view images or videos, and access other linked content.
Click the excerpt of any past notification in the left side bar menu to read the full message.
