Auto-subscription to content
On GCcollab, you will automatically be subscribed to notifications (both on site and by email) when you:
Create new content.
You will receive notifications related to the content you create when someone adds a comment or replies to it (eg. comments on a blog or file, replies to a discussion, etc.). These notifications can be managed from the “Personal Notifications” section.
Join a group.
After joining a group, you will start receiving notifications related to all new content added to that group, such as a new blog post, discussion topic, page, etc. These notifications can be managed from the “Group Notifications” section.
You will not receive notifications for subsequent comments/replies made on that content unless you:
- Manually subscribe to the content using the bell icon;
- Post a comment about that content;
- Post a reply to that content;
- Share that content.
Note: You will not receive notifications related to content that you “like” or “share”. These notifications can be managed from the “Other Content Subscriptions” section.
Subscribing to specific content from a page
On GCcollab, you also have the option to subscribe (or unsubscribe) to notifications directly from the page you are viewing.
- Go to the content of interest.
- Click on the bell icon:
- To subscribe - the bell will become a solid colour.
- To unsubscribe - the bell will become greyed out with a line going across.
