How the notifications service works
The notifications service delivers read-only notifications to software platforms, with the necessary data to describe the underlying event. The receiver of the notification will decide if further information and/or action is needed to respond to the notification.
There are 5 general categories of notification.
- Event notifications - notification about significant events that have occurred.
- Reminders - reminder of future events.
- Request for information - requests from us for information, typically the uploading of a document of a specific type.
- Errors - something that is not correct.
- Action required - something that needs to be done.
Sub-categories work out if the notification is relevant to the calling party.
