Managing Notification Preferences in Self Service

Self-service users can set and update their preferences for how they receive notifications.

Note: These preferences are ignored if the Override Notification Preferences check box has been selected on the Notification Setup page. This capability is offered for situations where a recipient must be sent a notification even if the recipient has not set their preferences, and particularly relates to Delegated Access/New User Registration.
