Manage Notifications in MyWharton
With MyWharton, you are able to customize the type and frequency of notifications you receive relating to activity in the platform. There are three places where you can customize notifications: in My Settings, on Group Pages, and on your mobile device.
How to Customize Notifications
If you'd like to enable email notifications in the community, make this selection in My Settings. Once email notifications are enabled, you can select the type of activity that generates a notification.
- Click on Your Name in the upper right-hand corner of MyWharton.
- Go to My Settings under your User Profile menu.
- Scroll down to Email Notifications, make your updates, and click Save.
- You can also customize notifications on individual Group Pages and turn on notifications on your mobile device for the MyWharton app (see instructions below). Our general recommendation is to turn on as many notifications as possible to start so you don't miss anything and then remove some if you feel you are getting too many.
For each group you are a member of, you can set the frequency of notifications from the group page for chatter activity related to this group - you can choose to be notified on every post, daily or weekly.
- Click on Groups and display My Groups.
- Select each Group Name, and then choose Manage Notifications to choose your preferred frequency.
MyWharton Mobile App
If you download the app, you will want to make sure notifications are enabled on your phone
- On your mobile device, go to Settings .
- Find the MyWharton app and make sure notifications are enabled.
NOTE: Only certain types of notifications can be received as push notifications (see notification triggers below)
When you receive a notification, you will see a number badge on the bell icon on your menu bar both in the MyWharton website and mobile app. Email notifications must be enabled in the community in order to see them on the bell icon.
Additionally, the following actions will trigger push notifications on your mobile device as long as you have enabled notifications on your device AND have the following settings enabled in MyWharton:
