About this task
If you want to confirm that your daily and weekly email digests are working as expected, you can trigger the digests to be sent to you by logging into IBM Connections and accessing specific URLs. For example, you might want to trigger the digests if you have customized your notifications and want to verify that the changes that you made are displaying correctly.
By triggering the email digests, you can avoid having to wait for the next scheduled digests to be sent; the digests are sent immediately. Note that the digests are only sent to the user who triggered the event by accessing the URL. You can perform this action multiple times if needed. Accessing the URLs does not affect the next digest that is scheduled to be sent to you; it is sent as usual.
- Log in to IBM Connections.
- Trigger the email digests by accessing the following URLs:
- Daily email digest:
- Weekly email digest:
When you access each URL, a message displays to confirm that the email has been sent.
