View and configure event notifications for a group

As an group administrator, you can view the event notifications that are activated for a group you manage.

Also, if a Adobe Workfront administrator unlocks an event notification, you can configure it for a top-level group that you manage. Configuration of an event notification consists of activating or deactivating it.

A Workfront administrator can also do this for any group.

Configuring an event notification for a group affects users for whom that group, or one of its subgroups, is their Home Group. In their user profiles, these users see the event notifications that are activated for their Home Group instead of the event notifications that are activated system-wide.

For information on how a Workfront administrator unlocks an event notification, see Unlock or lock configuration of event notifications for all groups.

For information about the default notification setting for an event, see Event notifications available in Adobe Workfront.
