Update to Notifications in CSP

Created On 09/25/19 00:12 AM - Last Updated 09/26/19 23:56 PM



The Customer Support Portal's notification system has been updated to provide additional functionality and ease-of-use in responding to certain notification types.

The updates to CSP notifications include the following:
  1. A much easier to read list of notifications with a more visible area
  2. The addition of two new notification types:
    • Assets
      • Device transfers
      • License transfers
      • VM-ELA token grants
    • Members
      • Account access requests
  3. The ability to view notifications in a single, consolidated list or filtered by a single notification type
  4. Distinguish between read and unread notifications
  5. The option of responding to a notification requiring action (e.g. accept or reject)
  6. Indication of completion for notifications requiring an action (where applicable)

Read and Unread Notifications

A gray background indicates that the notification has not been read; whereas, a white background indicates that the notification has been read. In Figure 1, the first notification is new and unread while the second has been read but still requires action.

Responding to a Notification

Asset and Member notifications can be addressed directly from the notification panel. Actions such as approving or rejecting license and asset transfers (for assets) and approving or rejecting account access requests (for members) is a now a quick process.

NOTE: The traditional method of responding to these notifications can still be accomplished by navigating to the applicable areas within the Customer Support Portal. When doing so, the status of those notifications will be reflected in the notification panel.


Completed/Done Notification Requests

Notifications that have been addressed remain visible in the notification panel, for reference, but are moved to the bottom of the list.
