Notification Types in Machine Advisor


Which notifications do I receive from Machine Advisor?

Machine Advisor notifications and messages can be divided into two levels – organization and user .

• organizational level: notifications send by the connected machines which are assigned to the current selected organization. These notifications are automated based on a planned maintenance task (task reminder), based on a machine condition (alerts) or for the safe connection of hardware and cloud (API token expiration).

• user level: notifications or messages sent to a specific user, to inform about new team invitations or responses on requests. Independent of the current selected organization.
