In eXo Platform 4.1, you can avoid missing anything in your organization with the Email Notification feature. These emails help you to keep track of activities and events in your Social Intranet. In eXo Platform 4.1, it is easy to control your own email notifications from a single location in the user settings. When this function is enabled, you will receive emails in 2 ways:
A notification email with different content for each event type. For example, for the activity embedding a video, the message will be represented as a thumbnail image of the embedded media, like below:
By clicking the Watch the video link, you will be redirected to the activity stream where you can play the embedded video.
A digest email that collects all notifications during a certain period and is sent once per day or per week.
To receive notification and digest emails, your administrator must enable notification plugins first. See Email notification administration for details.
