How do I manage my subscriptions and notifications?

When you created your EngX account you were asked what topics you were interested in, and these form the basis of the content you see in the community. In addition, you can customise your settings to receive updates via live alerts, emails or condensed into a digest.


Subscriptions generate notifications via email and/or live alerts when activity occurs within a specific group, application (blog, article), or forum post.

Notification emails and/or live alerts can be generated for:

  • Activity from subscriptions
  • Activity from your Network
  • Activity related to content you write.

To turn notifications ON for the group, application (blog, article etc), or content you are currently viewing:

  • Click on the More link or Manage Notifications link on the page.
  • Select "notifications on" to receive updates when there is activity within that specific group, application, or post.

To manage your personal Notification settings:

  • Click on your user avatar in the site header
  • Select Settings
  • Click on the Notifications tab
  • Use the checkboxes to modify settings.

To manage your personal Subscription settings:

  • Click on your user avatar in the site header
  • Select Settings
  • Click on the Subscriptions tab
  • Click Unsubscribe as desired.


If you want an overview of what’s been happening in the community, you can sign up to receive a daily or weekly digest, which highlights the new content (events, blog posts, articles, forum posts) in the community which match your interests.

To receive a digest from EngX, make sure you’re logged into the community and, on the home page, choose the frequency for your subscription via the drop down.
