- In the menu, select Notification Preferences.
You can also find Notification Preferences by doing the following:

- Under Edit Account, select Notification Preferences.
You have options for various notifications. For each of the notification you wish to set up, you can select one or all of the following:

- To confirm and save changes, click Submit.
A green banner should appear to confirm notifications have been successfully applied to your account.
