Configuring automatic subscriptions

Administrators can configure automatic subscriptions that editors automatically receive.

To configure automatic subscriptions:

  1. Access automatic subscriptions by doing one of the following:


    Access subscriptions…

    Configure role-level subscriptions
    1. Click menu > Admin > Users & Roles.
    2. Select the role for which you want to configure a subscription.
    3. Toward the right of the widget, select more_horiz> Notifications. A widget appears.
    4. Under Automatic Subscriptions, click add_circle_outline. A form appears.
    Configure system-level subscriptions
    1. Click menu> Admin > Sites & Settings > Sites > Global.
    2. Under CMS, expand Notifications.
    3. Under Automatic User Subscriptions, click add_circle_outline. A form appears.
  2. From the Topic list, select the automatic subscription's topic. (For a description of the various topics, see Subscriptions.) A form appears.
  3. (Optional, for workflow and publication subscriptions) Under Content Filters, design a content filter that sends notifications. As a best practice, design a content filter that triggers as few notifications as possible for the users receiving the notifications.
  4. (For shared subscriptions) In the Subscription selection field, do one of the following:

    • Select one of the available shared subscriptions.
    • Create a new shared subscription.

    For information about shared subscriptions, see Configure a shared subscription.

  5. (For global subscriptions) Under Tool Entities do the following:

    1. Click add_circle_outline. A selection field appears.
    2. Select an editor or role to receive this automatic subscription. If you select a role, all editors in that role receive the automatic notifications.
    3. Repeat steps a–b to add additional editors and roles.
  6. Click Save.
