Tutorial on Notifications

Be informed at a glance of the last changes on your planning via badges or notifications on the toolbars

1 - What is a notification?

A notification informs users of new or modified tasks and/or unavailabilities that are related to the planning activity.
The notifications can be defined per user and you can have relevant information on tasks and/or unavailabilities changes for one or several resources.
Notifications can be activated in PlanningPME as red badges on the planning board and / or notifications on your bottom toolbars.

2 - How can I activate notifications?

First, activate the option from the menu Tools -> Options -> Task and select "Activate notifications". Then, on the menu "View", you will now see the menu "Notifications". Notifications rights

Then, each user will do the settings of his own notifications: when connecting to his session (users rights must be activated in the software), he can decide whether he wants to be informed of additions and/or modifications of the events allocated to the different resources listed.
