As an admin or content owner, you want to change the default notification settings on an individual event type.


Change the Notifications settings for the event type, following these steps:

  1. Access the event type whose notifications you want to change from the default settings.
    Or, you can set these up when creating a new event type (profile menu > Add Event Type).

  2. Open the context menu (button with three dots) and select Edit.

  3. Go to Notifications.

  4. Use the toggles to turn notifications off or on and specify the timeframe for notifications.

    The checkmark-gear icon (indicating a default setting) is replaced by an Undo button. Click the Undo button to return the setting to the default.

  5. Optionally, add blurbs to the templated notifications to give more information specific to the event type.

  6. Save your changes.

Customizing event notifications

As an admin, you can view and customize our built-in notification templates by accessing Settings > Notification Templates and clicking Access notification templates. You can update event notifications (among other types of notifications) there. To learn more, see How to customize notification templates.

Cascading updates to already-scheduled events

When you update notification settings at the event type level, your changes can cascade to already-scheduled events of that type. Your changes only cascade to already-scheduled events if corresponding settings on a scheduled event are configured to use the event type default.

See How cascaded settings work for events for more.
