5. NOTIFICATIONS

How can I configure my notifications?

Go to your initials in the top right-hand corner and from the user menu choose “Preferences” and then “Notification Preferences”. Here you can change your general preferences for receiving notifications within POK or by e-mail.

Please note that these preferences apply on a general level: in order to actually receive notifications from a specific content, they must be activated for that content. For example, in order to receive notification of a new post in a forum, you must "subscribe" to the forum or thread (read the FAQ I don't get forum notifications, how do I activate them?).

Where do I find my notifications?

To open the list of notifications, click on the “Bell” icon in the top right-hand corner.

If there are notifications that you have not yet viewed, the icon will be marked with the number of unread notifications. You can click on the individual notification to open the context to which it refers.

I am not receiving announcement notifications, how do I activate them?

To receive notifications of site or course announcements posted on POK, open the “Notification Preferences” (user → preferences → notification preferences), locate the Forum row and set all the indicators below to On.

I don't get forum notifications, how do I activate them?

To receive forum notifications for a MOOC:

  • open the “Notification Preferences” (user → preferences → notification preferences), locate the Forum row and set all related indicators to On;
  • enter the forum and click on “Subscribe forum” in the top right-hand corner.
If the “Subscribe to forum” option does not appear, the failure to send notifications may be due to the fact that you have already subscribed to the forum, but have unsubscribed from a particular thread. Check the Subscribe column next to the threads and activate any unchecked ticks.

For which POK contents can I activate notifications?

You can choose to receive notifications by e-mail or within POK regarding:

  • site announcements;
  • activities and resources within the courses you are enrolled in;
  • course enrolments.
Notifications may concern, for example: staff announcements, a new post in a forum you follow, a new resource available in the course.

Can I completely disable POK from sending e-mail?

Yes: open the “Notification Preferences” (User → Preferences → Notification Preferences) and activate the “Disable Notifications” tick just below the title. This way you will no longer receive any notifications from any courses, either by e-mail or within the site.

If you wish to disable only email notifications, but not those within the site, from the “Notification Preferences” page change all status indicators under the e-mail column from On to Off.
