Instant notifications help you to keep track of the current status of your project or workspace. In Valispace, you can be notified about recent changes that concern (parts of) your project as well as finished background calculations.

This article is divided into two parts. First, we explore the types of notifications and then we look at how to receive these notifications.

There are different types of notifications a Valispace user can receive:

Now that we have talked about the different types of notifications, let’s go ahead and explore the ways we can receive the notifications.

There are two ways of receiving the notifications: 

  • Within the Valispace software

  • Via email

In the following, we will show you how that works.

How to: Create Subscriptions

To subscribe to Components:

  1. Go to the Components Module

  2. Right-click on the Component you wish to subscribe to

  3. Choose "Subscribe"

To subscribe to other Modules:

  1. In any Valispace Module, select the Vali/Requirement/Analysis/Simulation/Time Sequence/Test that you wish to subscribe to.

  2. On the right-hand side, click on the bell symbol

How to: See Notifications on Subscriptions

There are different possibilities to access the notifications of your own components and specifications:

Notifications on Subscriptions

  1. Go to Projects

  2. Navigate to "Notifications"

  3. You will see the latest changes of your subscriptions and components that you own (read more about ownership here)

Notifications on Subscriptions (Notification Panel)

  1. In any module, open the Notifications Panel by clicking on the button on the top right-hand corner of Valispace

  2. Navigate to "Subscriptions"

  3. You will see the latest changes of your subscriptions and components that you own (read more about ownership here)

Notifications on Changes of Entire Project

If you wish to see all changes that have been made within your entire project, open the Notifications Panel on the top right-hand side of Valispace and go to "Activities":

Email Notifications

In addition to the in-app notifications, you can enable or disable email notifications. Those emails include changes that concern your entire workspace.

  1. Click on your User Avatar on the top left corner

  2. Choose Settings

  3. Go to "User Workspace Notifications"

You can choose the frequency of these emails and activate or deactivate email notifications on:

  • Discussions

  • Tasks / Milestones

  • Subscriptions (which also include owned components)

  • Warnings

  • Project Statistics

Background Calculations

Within the same site, you can also activate or deactivate pop-up notifications about background calculations for your workspace that usually appear on the right-hand side within Valispace.

Enabling or disabling the Pop-up notifications will apply to all projects in your workspace, but only to your user account.
