Notifications

Last update: 2024-01-25

Notifications feature is applicable to all the users of Adobe Learning Manager. But, each user based on their role gets different kinds of notifications under various scenarios. All the alerts and notifications to users are displayed through notifications pop-up dialog.

Access notifications

Users can see notifications by clicking notifications icon at the upper right corner of the window. This pop-up dialog displays highlights of all the notifications along with time of occurrence with a scroll bar. To view more information about all the notifications, click Show All Notifications at the bottom of the pop-up dialog. Notifications page appears.

You can know the number of latest notifications by the highlighted number on top of the notifications icon. For example, if there are five latest notifications after your previous login, you can see the number 5 being displayed on top of the notifications icon. These numbers disappear once you read all the latest notifications.

Types of notifications for Administrators

Administrators get notifications under following instances:

  • Whenever a csv list of users is successfully uploaded.
  • Whenever the upload of a csv list of users is unsuccessful. The Admin gets a message with the reason for failure.
  • Administrator can also set up instance level notification alerts for courses and learning programs. In this case, Administrator gets the notifications based on the frequency selected at instance level.
NOTE

If an administrator has author or manager privileges in addition to his role, then the administrator gets notifications pertaining to each role.

A sample notification window for admin role is shown in the following screenshot:
