You can now customize your application notifications, you can choose what you get notifications for and the frequency that you receive them. When you go into your settings tab , there is a "Notifications" option. You will see 5 options within the notifications page. Each option has a drop-down that includes 5 different frequency options for those notifications. Immediately, Hourly, Daily, Weekly, and Never are the choices. If you choose hourly, the notification will come at the top of the hour. For the daily setting, you will choose the time(UTC) of day you want it to be sent. For the Weekly notification, you will choose the time of day and the day of the week (Mon-Sun).
If you have the hourly notifications set for Signatures, Tasks, Change Control, and Issues, items for all 4 will be sent in the same notification.
The notifications will define what Issue it is referencing and the item key will be a hyperlink that will open to the page if you are already logged into your ZenQMS account. If you are not you will be required to login. These notifications are all initially set to the default settings of never.
So you need to go into the notifications tab in order to customize the sending frequencies.
