By opting in, Ad Astra will send you contextual notifications focused on the things you care about. You can tailor your notifications by opting out if you no longer need to be notified about a topic.
The bell icon in the header provides access to current and past notifications for topics to which you have subscribed. If you have new notifications, a badge will appear on the icon indicating the number of new notifications; opening your notifications will hide this badge.
Turning Notifications On and Off
Where available, simply click the bell icon to enable notifications for the course selected. Once you have subscribed to a course’s notifications, the icon will update. The Notification will be enabled for the Course/Campus combination across all terms.
You can disable notifications for that course, by simply clicking it again.
Users will receive an overview outlining any unread notifications directly to their inbox. We want to be mindful that we're not inundating your inbox, so each unread notification will only appear in one email. The email will be sent one hour after an unread notification is generated.
Ad Astra provides users with the ability to tag another user in a comment related to a course. The tagged user will receive a notification that they have been tagged in a comment and linked directly to a specific course they were tagged in.
One important feature of filtering is the ability to share a filter with another user. When user A, shares a filter with user B, user A is the filter owner and has the ability to make changes and delete a shared filter. In order to keep users who are sharing a filter informed of any changes made by the filter owner, users will receive a notification for the following:
- Users have shared a filter with you
- Shared filters have been updated
- The shared filter have been deleted
