    • Reply E-mail: Use this option to enter an e-mail address that users can respond to. 
    • From Name: Use this option to enter a name that will appear in the "from" field. Most schools enter their school name.
    • Subject: Use this option to enter a subject for the notification. The subject will be used for all notifications so it should be generic. Placeholders can be part of the subject.
    • Body: Use this field to enter the body of the e-mail. Use the placeholders to automatically insert notification-specific content into the e-mail.
  • Text Notification:
    • Body: Use this field to create a message that is less than 160 characters. Use the placeholders to automatically insert notification-specific content into the text message.
  • Select Roles with Access - Academic Groups Only: Use this task to select which roles will have access to subscribe to assignment notifications from the My Notifications master page.

Each notification has its own unique set of placeholders. Edit the notification to view the available placeholders.
