  • Notifications: Covered in Notification Methods, the Notifications tab contains items required for enabled Notification Methods to work correctly. For example, if you want to receive an email you must specify your email address within the ‘Email:’ field in ‘Notifications’.
  • Notification Profiles: Covered in Notification Profiles, these are your personal notification profiles, similar to Shared Notifications Profiles but unique to your user.
  • My Links: Covered in My Links, this is where you configure what links are shown on the My Links tab on the menu.
