Message and task alerts

Article summary

Users can receive messages and task alerts from Totara in a number of ways and for a number of reasons. For example, users may receive instant messages via the messages menu (), or they may be messaged by their course Trainer via the People block. A Trainer might receive automatic notifications of assignment submissions, and Site Administrators might receive notifications about problems with the site.

How these messages and others are received can be configured by each user from the Messaging link on their Preferences page. Checkboxes allow the user to select how they wish to be notified of incoming messages. 

The Alerts block displays a range of alert messages, which can be for a manager and/or learner depending on how you set up the approval and request process. Read alerts are dismissed automatically from the Alerts block after 30 days.
