The event notification feature alerts you if there is an occurrence that concerns you, like when someone sends you a direct message, requested a meeting or tries to connect with you.
There are five places where you'll get a notification:
Bell icon - on top of the page beside your name
Chat icon - on top of the page beside the bell icon
Left arrow button (additional alerts) - left side of the chat area
Push Notifications - floating alert on the top right corner or bottom left corner
Email Notifications - sent directly to your email address
These icons and button notify you on different occurrences:
From the People tab, your profile will have buttons that will allow other attendees to contact you. When contacted, you'll get a notification.
Connect - click to request for a connection
Meet - click to request for a meeting
Video - click to start a call, this icon only appears if you’re already connected to that attendee
Chat - click to send a private message
Note: A green check would indicate you're already connected with an attendee.
Bell Icon Notification
The Bell Icon gives you notifications on calls, connections requests and meeting requests. Once a request is made a notification badge in red will appear on the bell icon. The number represents the number of notifications you haven't opened yet. When you click that you’ll see the details of the request and actions needed to be done.
Chat Icon Notification
The chat icon alerts you if you get a new direct message. A notification badge appears in gray color instead of red. The number represents the number of notifications you haven't opened yet. When you click that, it will open the chat channels menu where you can find your direct messages.
Aside from the bell and chat icon, the left arrow button also serves a notification icon. Instead of a notification badge, It will flicker if there's a new message, and turn the arrow to a number, indicating how many unread direct messages you have.
When that left arrow button is clicked, it opens the chat channels menu, wherein you can go to different chat channels without leaving the page that you're viewing.
To make sure that you get additional notifications, click on your profile and select settings. In settings, go to the notifications tab, enable the notifications and sound alerts you want to receive, and click save.
When notifications are enabled for specific channels, the chat arrow button will flicker indicating new messages. If it's off it will not flicker.
When you are mentioned in a specific channel, the chat arrow button will flicker.
When notifications are off, but you are mentioned, the chat arrow button would still flicker.
The chat arrow button only transforms into an unread message counter for direct messages.
Sound alert notifications only work when browser notifications are also turned on.
As an attendee, you may also receive push notifications. You'll get automatic notifications for upcoming sessions, meeting requests, upcoming meetings, and other announcements from the event organizer. It's the best way to alert you so you don't miss out on anything while the event is ongoing. If you accidentally close out the push notification, you can click the bell icon to view it again.
Note: You will still receive push notifications even if you don't allow notifications on your browser.
As an attendee, you may also receive an email notification if you are offline or logged out of the event.
To make sure that you'll receive email notifications, go to Edit Profile > Privacy and turn on the toggle for Send Me Notifications When I'm Offline.
