Subscriptions

The subscriptions page permits you to control when you are notified of changes to the Knowledgebase. You can be subscribed to both categories, and individual articles.

When you are subscribed to a category, you can choose to be notified when a new article is added to it, or when the category is changed somehow (by an article being added, modified, or deleted within the category).

When you are subscribed to an individual article, you can choose to be notified when the article is changed.

To make changes to your subscriptions, mark the appropriate boxes for each category or article. To unsubscribe from a category or article entirely, clear all the boxes for that category or article, then submit the form.
