A Calendar Notification is a message sent to your friend's Dashboard when a changes are made to your Calendar. Think of Notifications as Keep&Share's version of "You've got mail!" Instead of you having to visit each of your friend's accounts and look at all their shared information and try to notice what's new, use the Notifications list on your Dashboard to see the very latest information they're sharing with you.
Notifications tell you whenever your friends have created, edited or commented on items you might be interested in. These Notifications will appear in the purple “Inbox” in the center of your Dashboard screen (your friends can also choose to receive these notifications by email and/or text message). You simply click on any Notification in the inbox to instantly see the new information.
In order to for you or your friends to receive notifications however, you need to set up your Calendar to both send and receive Notifications by clicking on the check box next to "Send change notifications to shares" in the Share Control for your calendar. See the image below:
When you check the "Send change notifications to shares" box this means that change notifications will be sent to everyone on the Share List for your calendar. You and your friends can edit the frequency of Notifications they receive as well as if they want to receive notifications by email and/or text message by adjusting their communication settings. Below is how Notifications will look in the Inbox on your Dashboard:
