Disabling news notification

How to enable and disable news notification preventing the beacon from appearing on your screen when an update for the product is made available.

About this task

By default, all users receive all the news notifications. However, optionally, you can customize this behavior by preventing all or only some specific news from being notified to you.

When the beacon appears on your screen and you click it, the first notification displays in a pop-up. If you do not want to receive any notifications at all, or if you want to unsubscribe from some specific categories of notifications, select the related checkbox in the news pop-up.

To enable again all the news notifications, perform the following steps:
  1. From the navigation toolbar, click System Configuration > Set User Preferences. The Set User Preferences panel containing the current settings is displayed.
  2. Click Restore beacon defaults.
