In this part you'll learn how to manage your notification types & definitions.
Notification types vs definitions
Notification types allow you to create specific parameters for the notification that relate more with time (like triggering time and repeat time).
Notification definitions allow you to create actual notifications (whereas notification types set just specific parameters) that are assigned to specific users. You will be able to target a specific zone, select a notification type defined in the “Notification types” section and set the desired communication channel (like email or SMS).
