While it is beneficial to receive email alerts each time a student has made a change or updated their profile, you may not want to receive the same message repeatedly. There are some steps you can take to prevent this from occurring. First, you may set your account so that you only receive an email when there are new updates. Additionally, you will need to manage the updates by manually dismissing them. Until an update has been "dismissed", the update will be considered a new update. This is similar to 'read' and 'unread' emails within your email account.
1) How to limit receiving updates:
From your Dashboard select "My Settings & Preferences"
Within the "CustomCollegePlan Student Update Email Digests" section, toggle OFF the setting for "Send me an email even when no changes have been made by students".
2) How to dismiss updates I've already received:
On the Students Main page ("Students" tab), in the center column at the top, updates may be dismissed by clicking either on the red "X" for one update or “Dismiss all items" for all updates.
Dismissing an update will not change the action; it is simply a way for you to acknowledge the action taken by the student.
