Setting your fax notifications

Last updated on May 20, 2022
You can configure notification settings to send an email or text message when you send or receive a fax. You can set notifications for yourself, or an admin can set them for others. Admins must have User Management permissions to make notification changes.
 
When setting your fax notifications, you can choose to configure either basic or advanced notification settings. Advanced settings have more options for customizing notifications, whereas basic settings help to set up simple notifications.
 
Do you want to configure basic or advanced fax notification settings?
