LEO helps you keep track of your unit's online discussions and activities using Notifications. These appear in LEO, and may also be sent an an email to alert users to new notifications.
What are Notifications?
Some activities and events in LEO may create a "notification". Typically, this is to inform users of an action that affects them in some way, or as a reminder to the user they need to do something in LEO. Some examples include:
For students, when an Assignment or other activity has been graded.
For staff, if a marking deadline is approaching.
For all users, if a new post is made in a Forum they are subscribed to.
At the top right corner of LEO, next to your Name, there may be two additional icons ( for Messages and Notifications):
Click the 'Bell' icon at the top of the screen, next your your name. A Notifications Panel will appear:
Click the 'View full notification' link for the notification you wish to view. You will be taken to the Notifications page:
The notification message may include a link that you can click to go directly to the relevant activity or section in LEO. In the above example, clicking this link will take the user directly to the assignment submission to be graded.
In your LEO preferences, you can choose to receive either a "Web" notification or an "Email" notification, depending on whether or not you are currently logged into LEO when the notification is generated. You may also receive both, if both settings are enabled. Most activities are capable of generating notifications for users, such as the Assignment activity preferences:
