    Notifications???

    The Forum want's to send notifications? Does someone know what they are and why they're different than the e-mails?

    Re: Notifications???

    I'm guessing here, but in the middle of June there was a banner which appeared on the forum for several days encouraging people to sign up for this new facility - I remember that there were quite a few adverse comments about it as there was no way to decline and no way to dismiss the banner. It was eventually taken down. I suspect that the notifications would be via text messages to your mobile phone, rather than via emails, but this was never made clear.

    I have seen this (once, yesterday), and do know know what it is, but I have pushed the question to the tech team
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Regards

    Somewhere in there EF mentioned to me a bit about the difference to normal ( current ) Notifications, I think..

    _.....
    Recently it started "Popping up" again by me. But I think mostly when I was not logged in and/or on a computer I do not use much. Mostly I do not see it anymore I think on my main Computer when I am logged in
