Help / Setup email notifications

Adding email notifications to your online quiz

Notifications allow you to automatically email someone when one of your quizzes, tests or courses have been submitted. There are 2 types of notifications that you can send:

  1. Participant notifications - a customized message will be sent to the person who has completed and submitted your quiz. You can share their results, thank them for taking the test or provide additional follow up information.
  2. Self notification - a customized message will be sent to any email address that you provide. This can help you and other relevant people keep track of who has completed the quiz you created.

This guide shows you how to set up customized notifications to quiz participants, nominees, and yourself.
