Through notifications, you can always keep up-to-date in a personalized way on what is happening in any of your Groups: For example, you will be notified of a new Post on the Wall, a Live that is about to start and any other activity within your Groups.

Two types of notification are available:
- via app, which inform you on what is happening in your Groups directly from within WeSchool, available for both browsers and the WeSchool app.
You can see the notifications in the top right by clicking on the bell icon, while the red counter indicates how many notifications you have not yet read
- via email, messages sent to your enrollment mailbox help you to stay updated even when you're not connected to WeSchool
From your WeSchool Account Settings, you can decide which app and email notifications to receive and personalize your choices depending on the Group, according to your needs. For example, during a holiday period, you can choose to receive only email notifications, or disable notifications for a Group email to which you are always active and connected.
For app notifications, you can choose whether or not to receive:
- All notifications; remember that this is the default setting for every Group
- Only for more important notifications (Highlights), which include the activities of an instructor in the Group, such as when they add content to a Module or post a new Test, as well as other interactions that directly involve you, such as a reply to one of your Posts on the Wall or to a comment within a Module.
- No notifications
For email notifications, you can choose whether or not to receive:
- All emails; remember that this is the default setting for every Group
- No emails
