Notification config settings

Configuration settings for notifications

To access the configuration settings that affect notifications:

  1. Go to the Admin panelAdvanced section > Configuration settings page.
  2. Type notification in the Search config settings field to narrow the config settings results.
  3. Find the config setting you want to change.
  4. Click in the Value column beside the config setting and change the value of the setting in the box that appears.
  5. Click Save.

Change length of time before another notification email is sent

Change the config setting to the time in minutes that you want to elapse between notifications about changes to the same page/file/folder. This setting applies to page adds and edits, not to comments, archiving/restoring, following, etc.

Change how many notifications show in menu

Change the config setting applicationToolbar.notifications.numberOfItems to the number of notifications that you want to show in the notifications menu on the application toolbar. As new notifications appear, they will replace older notifications, so only the specified number of notifications shows in the menu.

Change length of time between checking for new Alerts

Administrators can control how often the intranet checks if users have new Alerts (Notifications/Mentions). When a user has new Alerts, this is signified by a red dot containing the number of new Alerts shown in the Alerts menu.

Change the config setting notifications.pollingInterval to the time in milliseconds that you want to elapse between checking for Alerts.
