Overview of Automatic Notifications for Participants

By default, participants will receive email notifications from the study or studies they are active in. To reduce the number of individual emails that are sent, notifications are grouped and sent in a digest .

The default sending frequency for email digests is 6AM, 12PM and 6PM. You can modify this frequency from Site Administration > Settings > Email Settings
