'Notifications' in eFront lingo are the communication emails that are sent automatically from the system when specific events take place.
eFront comes with a full set of predefined, elegant and powerful notifications. You can also embed notification in branch-specific templates, for a uniform and customized experience.
The Notifications section shows a list of all defined Notifications and allows you to edit and (de)activate (1) a Notification.
You can customize the template using the relevant button (2) and have a different template per branch.
The Notifications section also contains the 'Queue' (3) and 'History' (4) tabs, which show pending and previously sent notification emails respectively.
Note: For all the portals hosted in our servers, the default cronjob is set to run every 3 minutes and to send up to 100 emails at a time.
Furthermore, there are three very useful tabs, the Certificate expirations (5) that show a list of all the notifications regarding the certificates that are going to expire, the Course Expirations (6) that shows the notifications that are about to be sent on course expirations.
Finally, the Upcoming training sessions (7) that show the notifications that will be sent to the users that have registered to live training sessions as a reminder.
Note: You can take advantage of expiration reminders and make use of the iCal format, compatible with calendar software (Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird lightning, Gmail, iOS etc), for sending out training invitations. All out of the box!
