The Notifications area is accessed through the lightning bolt button in the top navigation of Mouse Create.
If you have new notifications since the last time you clicked into the Notifications area, you will see a number in a red circle on the lightning bolt. This number clears when you click into the area.
You’ll receive notifications for many different events on Mouse Create (see below for a list).
The left side of the notification has the avatar image of the user who prompted the notification. If the speech box around the avatar is gray, the notification is from a student. If it is green, the notification is from an educator.
To view a notification, click it. This will mark the notification as “read” and it will turn light gray.
Click the “see only unread” link at the top to show just the notifications that you haven’t already clicked to view.
If a new notification comes in while you are in the Notifications area, refresh the page in your browser to view it, or click to a different area of the site and return.
