Configuring a web gadget notification channel

In Dev Studio, you can configure a web gadget channel to send notifications to users. Web gadget notifications are displayed as messages in the application at run time.

  1. Click the Records Explorer and expand the Process category.
  2. Click Notification.
  3. Click the notification for which you want to configure a web gadget channel.
  4. On the Channels tab, in the Display section field of the Web gadget section, keep the default section or enter a section to display your notification message. Click the Open icon to create a new section or to open the section that you specified.
    Note: To ensure that users receive notifications from at least one channel, you cannot disable web gadget notifications. However, users can update their notification preferences at run time.
  5. From the Default preference list, enable or disable the web gadget channel for all the users in your application. This value is displayed as the default option for the web gadget channel when users see their notification preferences at run time. They can update the preferences as needed.
  6. Optional: Configure multiple web gadget channels for different notification categories:
    • If you have multiple web gadgets, specify the category that determines which web gadget displays your notification message. On the Advanced tab, keep the default field value or enter a field value of type pyNotificationCategory in the Category field that displays your notification under the corresponding web gadget at run time. Click the Open icon to create a new field value or to open the field value that you specified.
    • Enter parameters for the field value in the Parameters section.
  7. Click  Save.
