With Notification Control Center, you can configure and manage all your notifications. You can create notification flows to remind you of upcoming events or to notify you of status change in a particular record. 

Notifications are available across the following communication channels:

  • Slack
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Salesforce1 Mobile App
  • Salesforce

Max supports the following types of notifications: 

  • Reminders
    Reminder notifications are triggered on a scheduled basis and apply to actions that are pending, where you made to remind the relevant stakeholder to take the next action. For example, reaching out to an assigned approver or a contract reviewer about pending items that you have submitted to them.
  • Upcoming Events 
    Upcoming event notifications are triggered on a scheduled basis and suggest actions that the relevant stakeholder can take preemptively to stay on top of their customer interactions. For example, create a new agreement when the existing agreement is terminating soon, or cloning a quote which is set to expire in the upcoming days. 

To access the Notification Control Center, Click More Menu → Max Notification Control Center in your Salesforce Org.
