Receiving and Configuring Central Notifications
The Central notifications service lets you keep in touch with what’s happening in the projects you’re actively working on. You can receive notifications for different events via email and/or via the Central Portal. You can also change how receive notifications at any time.
This guide describes the different ways you can receive Central notifications and how to configure them. It is divided into:
- Receiving Notifications in the Central Portal
- Receiving Notifications via Email
- Configuring Notifications
Receiving notifications in the Central Portal is a good option if you are using the portal regularly and want to have an overview of activity on the set of projects you have access to.
When notifications are received via the Central Portal, a bell at the top of the window shows unread notifications:
Clicking the bell displays the list of notifications:
You can also view the full list of notifications by clicking the All Notifications link at the bottom of the Notifications menu.
When notifications are received via email, the Central notifications service sends an email to a user that gives them a link to the project that has been updated:
The link will open in the Central Portal.
Notifications are enabled by default for all Central projects you have access to, and over time the number of notifications you receive may become quite large. You can reduce the number of notifications you receive by changing notifications preferences.
To change your notification preferences, sign in to the Central Portal and click on the notifications button at the top of the window. Next, click Preferences:
The Preferences window is divided into two parts, Project Notifications and Following.
In Project Notifications, choose the types of notifications you wish to receive and how you receive them:

When you choose to receive notifications via Email, an email will be sent to the email address associated with your Seequent ID for all the event types you have selected. This is a good option if you are collaborating with your team via the Central Browser and/or Leapfrog and don’t often use the Central Portal.
