As a folder owner, you can configure Novell Filr to send other users email notifications, in order to inform them of any activity in the folder and any subfolders of the folder. If a user does not want to be informed of activity in the folder, the user can change the notification settings. A user’s individual settings override or cancel notifications established by folder owners.
You cannot directly configure a subfolder to send email notifications; instead, you must configure the parent folder.
