Viewing Notifications

Use the Notifications view to see notifications you received based on your subscriptions. You can subscribe to notifications in your user profile. For details, refer to Notification Subscriptions.
Note: If you do not see the Notifications tab in your user profile, your product-access level may require that an administrator set your subscriptions for you.

Your administrator determines how long notifications remain in the list before they are purged. You can specify how often the Notifications view should be refreshed. For details, refer to Display Options.
