What they do

In My Workspace, you can set preferences for how and how often you receive email notification of worksite activity, such as Announcements, Email Archive, Matrices, Resources, and Syllabus. You can also choose which worksites appear in your navigation, and which worksites have their own tabs.

Key concepts

Notification methods: You may choose from several notification methods for Announcements, Email Archive, Matrices, Resources, and Syllabus activity:

  • Receive each notification separately: You receive email notification for each change (e.g., when an Announcement is posted, a Resource is added, or email is sent).
  • Receive one email per day: Individual changes (e.g., Announcements, Resources, Syllabus activity, or mail messages) are bundled into a single email message and sent to you daily.
  • Do not send me low priority notifications: You receive no notification regarding low priority site activity.

Customize Tabs: The first few sites to which you belong have their own tabs in your navigation. To change the sites that have their own tabs, or remove a site completely from your navigation, click Customize Tabs.

Things to consider

  • You cannot have different preferences for individual worksites. For example, if you change your Email Archive notification to "daily digest", you will get a daily email message from each of the sites to which you belong. Or, if you choose to block Announcements, notifications about low priority announcements will be blocked for all sites to which you belong.
  • High priority notifications cannot be blocked. If you send a high priority notification, it is delivered immediately to all of your site's participants.
