Je kunt selecteren hoe je meldingen krijgt voor elk activiteitstype



  1. Selecteer het meldingstype voor elk activiteitstype. Er zijn vier meldingstypes:

    • Email: Your primary email address will receive an email each time the activity occurs.

    • Email digest: Your primary email address will receive an email each day with a list of the activities of the last 24 hours. Typically, this email is sent at around 6 p.m., but this can be changed.


      Als je er voor kiest om e-mail of gegroepeerde e-mail te ontvangen, dan zullen alle activiteiten ook in je inbox opgenomen worden wanneer ze gebeuren. Ze zullen allemaal als gelezen gemarkeerd worden. Deze meldingen zullen automatisch vervallen en verwijderd worden van je inbox na 60 dagen.

    • Inbox: Your notifications area will display a list of activity notifications received.

    • None: You can opt to not receive any notifications for certain types.


      You cannot select “None” for system messages and messages from other users so that you do not miss them.

  2. Klik op de Bewaar-knop om wijzigingen aan het ontvangen van meldingen te bewaren


Enkel een beheerder met servertoegang kan de tijd wijzigen voor het versturen van de dagelijks gegroepeerde e-mail. De variable $emaildigest in het bestand htdocs/notification/emaildigest/lib.php moet daarvoor gewijzigd worden.
