System notifications bring your attention to interactions with your website from your website visitors as well as special announcements from the iPlasmaCMS2 Development Team.

  Most notifications have an option for dismissal but be advised: once dismissed, these notifications cannot be retrieved.

  • Alert Notifications are extremely important notifications with a high priority. These are highlighted in red. They are important pieces of information such as changes to service hours.
  • Announcement Notifications are also important pieces of information, but do not have the priority level of Alert Notifications. These are highlighted in green. Most of these will be CMS updates.

Example of Notifications as they appear at the top of the CMS Dashboard:

All Notifications will have a link contained within the notification that will lead you to a related interface to respond to the pending action(s).
