The USB ID Repository
If you want to monitor changes of an item, you can set up a notification to get informed
whenever it changes.
Browse to the item and click the notifications link (it is visible only when you are logged in).
You can set:
- Effect range ‒ which ID's are considered for this notification. If the notification is not recursive, only the current ID is taken into account. Recursive notifications work on the given ID and its whole subtree (sub-items, their sub-items, …).
- Notification level ‒ how serious an event needs to happen to trigger the notification. None means that the notification never happens (it ceases to exist, you can delete it by setting it to this level), main comment & sub-item means whenever an admin approves a change of the name or when someone submits a new item with this one as a parent, suggestion is when someone suggests a new name for the item (but it is not yet approved) and discussion means whenever anybody writes anything.
All the more general notifications contain the less general ones (when you check discussion and an admin approves a name change, it is triggered too, but not the other way around).
- Notification way ‒ the way the notification gets to you.
There is a list of currently existing notifications at the bottom of page.
You can switch to them by clicking on them.
The notifications are a part of your personal settings. You need to get an account in order to set them up.
You can configure various things (like the address where the notifications are sent) in your profile.
