In order to better communicate with all stakeholders of the learning community, Abre Notifications provides real-time in-app, SMS (text messaging), and email notifications for staff, students, and family users.
How to Set Up Notifications
All Abre Notifications must be opted in to by default. To set up your notifications, follow the steps below.
- Select the bell icon on the top right corner of the screen.
- Select "Notification Settings". This page offers a variety of in-app notification types that users can opt into/enroll in based on their granted permission levels. NOTE: SMS and Email notifications will be disabled by default. Please email email@example.com for further information.
- Select the checkbox next to the notifications you wish to opt into. These will be saved automatically.
How to View In-App Notifications
When a user has a new notification(s), a number will appear next to the bell icon, indicating the number of unread notifications the user has. Selecting the bell icon will display a "Recent Notification" popup. All unread notifications will have a red dot next to them. To view all notifications, a user can select "See All" at the bottom the notification list.
Selecting a notification will bring the user directly to the page/activity described in the notification. For example, if a notification indicates that an assessment was shared, selecting the notification would bring the user directly to the shared assessment.
