Notifications let you know when another user has posted or sent content that is relevant for you. They may have replied to a post you have made, posted in a group that you belong to, or sent you a private message. On a desktop your notifications appear as a red number over the notification icon in the navigation bar: you can see Kenny has received one new notification in the image below, which is highlighted in yellow in the summary list. Click on the summary to be taken to the relevant page.
Notifications also appear on the Classlist app on the home screen of your mobile, and within the app they show up on the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen:
You can check notifications individually, or mark them all as read at once.
Changing your notification settings
The notifications page of your profile allows you to opt in or out of emails and bell notifications generated from different types of activity on the site. If you are using the Classlist app on your phone you may choose to opt out of some emails.
You can set notifications on or off for emails and bell notifications for each category of communication: group posts, messages, private events, community events, announcements and whole school posts.
By default, you will receive email notifications for all communications on Classlist, except for posts on the whole school group, and Marketplace posts, which are included in the weekly Digest rather than being sent individually.
To change your settings, go to your Profile and click on Notifications.
