What are notifications?

Notifications, shown under the Notifications icon (bell_icon.jpeg), are alerts for you about actions that have occurred since your last visit.

When you have a notification, the Notifications icon has a dot (bell_icon_with_notification.jpeg) to show that there are one or more notifications waiting for you.

Select the icon to see and open any notifications.  Notifications include such actions as:

  • New messages in your inbox
  • Contact requests
  • Letters of Reference received
  • A document or college list shared with you
  • Feedback left on a shared item

Once you act on a notification (for example, by reading the new message), it won't be shown in the Notifications icon.

See Will I get email notifications? for information on receiving your notifications by email.
