When a user receives notification, a red circle will appear on the notifications button with a number inside. This number indicates how many new notifications are received.  Users can view new and past notifications via the notifications button/pop up or by going to the notifications page.

  • Web Notifications

If the " Account Tab" is turned on under the Notifications settings, users can control what notifications they want to receive from their account page. These includes core notifications as well as installed extension notifications (E.g. User Reviews and myCrRED).
