View notifications

Notifications appear in the Google Chat space defined by the library administrator who set up the AODocs Chatbot. 

The notifications consist of a message customized for your business case, in the example below "Action is required in this document", and a document card displaying essential information about the document. 

Click See document to open the document in a new browser tab and perform the required action. 


Trigger on-demand notifications

If your library administrator has set up the AODocs Chatbot with a Viewer Action custom script, users can trigger on-demand notifications from documents.

2. Use the jigsaw puzzle to trigger the on-demand notification. A confirmation message appears when the notification has been sent.

Note: Your library administrator may have customized or removed this message according to your business use case.
