Notifications

If notifications are enabled in your application, when you follow items, you can subscribe to those items to receive email notifications for comments and updates. Weekly email notifications are sent on Mondays, monthly notifications are sent on the first day of the month, and daily notifications are sent at 12:00 AM.

Because you add saved searches to workspaces, if monitoring saved searches is enabled, you can choose to monitor your saved searches and receive notifications for the workspace. If the results change for a saved search that you monitor, that activity is listed in your activity feed. The two most recent activities are sent in the notifications email.

Managing Notifications

If notifications are enabled in your application, to get email notifications, when you follow an item, click the envelope icon next to the Follow button. To manage notifications for multiple items and to set your preferences:

  1. From the user menu, which is located by default on the right side of the application header, select Manage notifications.
  2. Click the Preferences tab, and select the frequency that you receive notifications.
  3. Select whether you want to receive updates, comments, or both.
  4. Click Save.
  5. From the Current tab, you can review the list of items you are following. To change your email notifications for an item, click the mail icon next to the Following button. You can also unfollow items from this list. After you refresh the page, items that you unfollow are removed from the list.

What is a widget?

A widget is a part of the Watson Explorer application code that delivers content in a page to you based on the settings for that widget.

Each page visited in the Watson Explorer application is a collection of data that is specific to the subject of that page. Different types of information is delivered to you depending on what the subject of the page is. For example on your home page the subject is you, so all the information displayed are items that are relevant to you. On an item page the subject is the specific item, only information relating to that item is displayed.

You can find an item by typing its name in the search box or by using the list page links at the top of the page.

You can follow an item by navigating to its page and clicking the button. If hovercards are enabled in your application, you can hover over an item's name on a list page and click the Follow button in the hovercard.

You are automatically logged out of the Watson Explorer application when you close your browser session.
