See this video walkthrough to learn about the new notifications system: 

Open Accordion Close Accordion

Create tag sets based on an individual product or capability. Be selective when adding more than one tag - the more tags you add, the more specific your notifications become, which will result in fewer content matches. If you are interested in multiple product versions or capabilities, create a tag set for each one.

The Tag-Set Builder feature of the new notification system replaces any preferences you previously set in My Pega, for the Support Center. The new notifications system allows you to follow content that interests you all across Pega Community, the Support Center, and Pega Academy.

No, your existing Support Center preferences have been migrated to the new system, so you won’t receive duplicate notifications.

Although you can turn off your weekly digest for each individual tag set, we recommend identifying the content or tag-set that is generating the high volume of notifications. You can unfollow content or modify your tag set to make it more granular, and reduce the number of notifications that you receive.

As Pega community members move from one organization to another, if you register using a new email address a new user record is created in PUM (Pega User Management). If you want to see all your activities, data, and certifications in a new email account, accounts need to be merged so that all old data can be reflected in the new account.

Note: We recommend using your organization account as the primary. A personal account as an alternate can be used to back up your information and prove ownership if you ever change organizations.

Before determining which account will become the primary account, take a minute to consider the access held by each account.

The following actions take place when two accounts are merged:

Assume User 1 is merged into User 2:

  1. User 1’s email addresses will be copied as alternate email addresses into User 2.
  2. All data in User 1’s account is cleared, and the account status is marked as Merged, and all data moves to the User 2 account.
  3. Once accounts are merged, use the new email address (User 2) to logon to Pega Community where you can see all your data and certifications.


Once accounts have been merged, there is no option to unmerge.

Before merging you must prove ownership of the account. Below is the process to prove your ownership:

1) Send an email to [email protected] from your old email address indicating that you want to merge with the new account.

1a):  If you have an issue sending an email from your previous organization account, we suggest logging in to the Pega Community site using your old email address (from the previous organization) and then click your Name > My Profile > Edit Profile > About Me > Bio and type Merge my account with <new email address>into the Bio.

2) Send email from your new primary account to [email protected] and request to merge it with your old account (provide both new and old accounts in the email).

If you followed step 1a above, mention that you already typed "Merge my account with <new email address>” in the old account, so that the team can confirm your ownership and then proceed with the account merge.

It may take up to 1 week for all course progress and certifications to synchronize with the merged account.

Note: Once your accounts have been merged, please remove the message which you posted earlier to prove your ownership of the old account.
