  2. Notification
    This option sets whether or not to give the user notification, via pop up message, when a new file has been stored in the folder.  The notification is issued when a file is added via downloading or has been sent via email.
    Notification can be turned on and off for each folder and sub folder.
    Go to the 'Tools' menu and select 'Options'.  You will see the window below.  Click on the name of the folder (e.g. the Author you type for) on the left.  Then click on 'Notification' and then the down arrow on the right and choose 'Yes' or 'No'.  Click 'Apply' when you have finished these changes.

    To change when and how the notification messages appear go to the 'Tools' menu and select 'Options'.  Click on the 'Workflow' tab at the top then 'Notification' on the left to get the window below. 
    Click the 'Customize...' button to set the items that are displayed and to turn on/off the 'Auto Closing' of the pop up message feature.
    If you are getting more notifications than you expect check you don't have 'Notification reminder for new dictation waiting for transcription' ticked, because as long as a newly added dictation file has [Recording.Finished] status, notification is issued repeatedly, even if the user has already been notified of the file's arrival.  Also check the notification setting on the Folders as described above.
    'Support background notification when Transcription Module is not running' should be ticked if you want to receive notification messages even when the Transcription Module is not being used.
