In the upper right of the all Avention pages, you'll find a mailbox icon. If you have unread notifications, the number of these notifications will be displayed. Click on the icon to display the list of SmartList Notifications and Trigger Notifications. The five most recent notifications of each type are displayed. There is other a View All link so that you can see older notifications. Notifications inform you when your SmartLists change (for example, a company releases news about a merger, which makes it now fit the criteria for inclusion in one of your SmartLists) or when specific trigger events are detected. You specify whether you want to receive notifications, and which type, in the Notification Settings section of the User Preferences page.
