You may have noticed that there is a new Notifications window, triggered by clicking the bell icon on the top right menu bar.It looks like this...
The existing pop-up messages displayed at the top right of the browser window continue to display:
When the pop-up message appears, it is also added to the list of Notifications.
Notifications can be dismissed by clicking on the X to the right of each. Notifications remain in the list until dismissed.
The count/number next to the bell automatically increments when a new Notification is added, and decrements when a Notification is dismissed.
Click on a pop-up and it opens the Notifications list.
The Notifications include
Slips & Broadcasts
Success – green tick
Action – orange arrow
Warning – red warning symbol
Information – blue information symbol
The visual design of the pop-ups has been updated. The pop-ups are either:
Green = success. Something finished (eg. an export)
Blue = information. Something is happening but hasn’t finished
The previous red error pop-up has been changed to a static bar across the top. This addresses comments from users that, by using pop-ups which don’t remain on screen, they don’t get time to check out the error message.
