In Zoho FSM, there are two types of notifications:
  1. In-App Notifications
  2. Custom Notifications

In-App Notifications

Through the in-app notifications, users will get notified about relevant updates. The notifications may be of events that require action from the user (e.g. an estimate is approved) or might just convey some information (e.g. notes are added to an appointment). The notifications can be viewed both on the web and mobile app.
The user who initiated the event that triggered the notification will not receive the notification.
