    Configuring Notifications

    Leganto generates notifications about events. Notifications appear in a pane in Leganto, to both students and instructors, and in the Recent Changes tab on the Edit Reading List page in Alma (see Editing a Reading List).
    Students (when enabled; see Configuring Whether Students Receive Notifications, below) and instructors receive a daily email (Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter, code LegantoDetailedNotificationsLetter) about waiting notifications. To configure this letter, see Configuring Alma Letters.
    You can schedule the job that emails instructors and students when notifications are waiting for them on the Fulfillment Jobs Configuration page (see Configuring Fulfillment Jobs).

    Notification Types

    Possible notification types are as follows: unless otherwise configured (see Enabling/Disabling Notification Types for Instructors and Students, below), all types are visible to instructors, and types in bold are visible to students.

    Enabling/Disabling Notification Types for Instructors and Students

    You can enable or disable specific types of notification for instructors and/or students in the Notifications Instructors (Configuration Menu > Leganto > Features > Notifications - instructors) and Notifications Students (Configuration Menu > Leganto > Features > Notifications - students) mapping tables. For more information about mapping tables, see Mapping Tables.

    The Notifications Students mapping table looks and functions exactly the same, but only the notification types enabled for students appear (see Notification Types).
    To enable or disable a notification type, customize the row, select Yes or No in the Enable column, and select Save to save your changes.

    Translating Notifications

    You can translate notifications (in Alma, these are recent changes) in the System Event Types code table (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Courses > Notification Types). For more information about code tables, see Code Tables.

    You can change the translations of the notifications on this page.

    Configuring Sending Notifications

    By default, students receive notifications from Leganto. You can disable this feature so that only instructors receive notifications from Leganto.
    To disable notifications for students:
    In the customer parameters table (Configuration Menu > Leganto > General > Settings), configure the parameter email_notifications_group to one of the following values: ALL - Students and instructors receive notifications; STAFF - Only instructors receive notifications. If left blank, no notifications are sent.
    The mapping table Configuration > Leganto > Features > Notifications instructors and Configuration > Leganto > Features > Notifications student fully disables the notification, from both the Leganto UI and Alma. To only disable the notification for the Alma letter, change the letter template in the Alma Configuration Letters.
