Creating a New Notification

New events can be created and viewed in admin Toolbox /admin/toolbox?tab=event-notifications. Select the "+ Notification" button and you'll be provided with a dialog. Complete the form using the URL for the service you'd like to connect to. Before saving be sure to use the test feature.


The feedback provided from the test feature indicates only if the URL you provided is valid, not if the message was successfully sent. Be sure to check the notification feed for the test message.
