Article Summary

As an administrator, you can receive and view notifications about portal and users as follows:

  • In the end user view, by clicking the notifications image.png icon when it shows notifications.
  • In the NOTIFICATIONS section of the main dashboard (Main > Dashboard). This section displays the highest priority notifications.
  • In the NOTIFICATIONS page (Main > Notifications). Here, you receive all types of notifications that are enabled on the Notification Settings page (Settings > Notification Settings).
  • By email. Notifications are sent to the administrator.

Notifications enable you to track error and warning conditions. For instance, one can use the notification dashboard to track failed backup jobs.

The notification dashboard displays error and warning conditions that are currently in effect, including alerts related to the system, storage nodes, specific virtual portals, users and devices.

It is possible to mark specific notifications as hidden, if you do not feel that they require immediate attention. Those notifications can always be unhidden later if desired.

Viewing Notifications

You can view a summary of the highest priority notifications in the end user view and administrator dashboard and all the notifications in the NOTIFICATIONS page.

Viewing Notifications in the End User View

When there are notifications, the number is displayed on the notifications icon. Clicking the notifications image.png icon displays a list of notifications.
Clicking a notification in the list opens the device details to investigate the cause of the notification. Clicking See all displays the NOTIFICATIONS page in the administrator view in a new tab.

If there are notifications, you can go directly to the NOTIFICATIONS page by clicking SHOW IN NOTIFICATION MANAGER.
