User Notifications

Overview

This tutorial will show you how to subscribe to event notifications in Logistics Business Network.

The first section will show you how to enable notifications for your Logistics Business Network. The second section will show you how to subscribe users so they receive notifications when an event happens.

Notification settings are set per user. For example, if you have five LBN users, you will need to subscribe each user to notifications individually following the steps below.

1. Enable Notifications for your Logistics Business Network

If you want users to receive notifications from Logistics Business Network, you need to tell LBN what kind of events to push notifications for. This can only be completed by an administrator.

Login to your Logistics Business Network account. In the header menu click “Manage Network” and open the app “Manage Notification Settings”:

 

 

A list of scenarios will open. Click the scenario you want Logistics Business Network to send a notification about.

For example, click the scenario “Invoice Submission After Dispute Resolution”:

 

 

 
In the Configurations tab, move the switch”On-Event Notification” to “Yes” to turn on system wide notifications for this event.

When this is toggled to “Yes” all users that are subscribed to this event will receive a Notification.

There is no save button, when you move the toggle switch the system automatically saves.

Repeat this process for each event you want to receive notifications for.

 

2. Subscribe Users to Notifications from LBN
