Notifications Add-on So That You Don’t Miss Out Anything
With the Tutor LMS v1.9.10 update, you will start seeing a new notification bell icon 🔔 on the frontend profile dashboard. You will see notifications for student activity, what your instructors are doing, and get a real-time update on all their activities. These settings are available for students, teachers, and you as an admin of your Tutor LMS-built site.
The viewed(read) notifications will be grayed out once it is previewed/clicked. Different types of notifications such as announcements, quizzes, Q&A, etc will be previewed in different color schemes on the notification list. Once a user clicks on a specific notification, it will be automatically read and will redirect the user to that specific event location on that site based on the type of notifications. If you click on a course enrolled notification, you will be redirected to that course page after you click on the notification.
Please note that all notifications don’t have redirect URLs.
There is also an option (three dots) to mark all the notifications as read or mark all as unread. Click on the three dots to see the options.
You will find advanced customization options to allow different types of notifications under different types of user roles after enabling the add-on. You will be able to set what notification your LMS website’s students will receive, what instructors will receive on their dashboard notification.
