Getting Started with LifterLMS Notifications


# Top

LifterLMS notifications are either email, basic “pop-up”, or SMS (text messaging)  messages that happen when a certain event happens in your LifterLMS powered site.

Notifications can go to course authors, students, and others.

The LifterLMS notifications system is part of the free core LifterLMS plugin

Notifications of all types have stock messages, with personalized data merged in, and these messages can be modified from the defaults.

Modifying Notification Icons

Some basic notifications (like course enrollment, lesson completion, and more) allow you to upload a custom icon to be displayed next to the image.

To upload a custom image, navigate to the notification settings and click “Basic” for the notification you’d like to customize.

From here you can use the “Upload” button to upload a new image to your media library for use as the notification’s icon.

You can also disable the icon completely by checking the “Disable Icon” checkbox.
