To ensure that you receive up-to-date information, Brightspace Pulse sends push notifications for all new and updated notifications. This removes the need to manually check for notifications. Push notifications help to keep you informed about course-related updates from Announcements, Activity Feed, Grades, Quizzes, Assignments, and Content in Brightspace.
After logging in for the first time, course notifications do not appear in Pulse until new updates are created in Brightspace.
Note: Discussion topic due dates are unsupported as notifications in Brightspace Pulse.
View push notifications
If there are unread notifications, a red notification dot displays on the Notifications tab.
Note: If you have multiple Brightspace Pulse accounts and there is at least one outstanding notification for any of the accounts, a red notification dot displays on the Menu icon or organization logo in the navigation bar.
