Users of Docs receive automated notifications based on their permissions whenever agreement updates are made. However, if a user does not wish to receive any notifications, their administrator can disable them by modifying the permissions for that user.
For more information on what notifications are generated for users, please review the Notifications Matrix available in the Docs User Notification Matrix article.
Receive Alerts Permission
Only users with the "Receive Alerts" permission selected will receive notifications, regardless of what other permissions they may be assigned. The Receive Alerts permission operates independently of all other permissions, and will never be automatically assigned to a user. Administrators have the ability to assign this permission to a user whenever they create the user account, or anytime thereafter.
The "Receive Alerts" permission is found at the party level, immediately to the right of the "Party Admin" permission. Administrators can choose to activate notifications for a user at the party level by selecting the checkbox for that party, or, if the user should receive these notification emails for all parties they have access to, by selecting the checkbox at the Institution level.
