Messages, emails and actions


Emails are used in ResourceSpace to notify users of ResourceSpace activity that they may be interested in e.g. when resources have been submitted for review, when a user account request has been made or when users request access to restricted resources. By default most email notifications have now been replaced by system messages, however you can still opt to receive emails instead where possible.

Changing your email preferences

There are various options to adjust what emails you receive. These settings can be found by clicking on the user icon, selecting 'My Preferences' and scrolling to the 'email' section. Please note that your ResourceSpace account must have a valid email address set to be able to see these options
