Navigation / Internal Notifications
The Notification function in Summit is designed to assist the User in managing their workload by updating the User when others have commented or changed a status.
Navigating the Notifications
Notifications are located at the top of the Navigation pane. When there are new notifications, a number badge appears next to Notifications indicating how many new notifications there are since notifications was last opened. Opening the Notifications will remove the badge.

The notifications are organized by proposal. The most recent notifications for each proposal are grouped together.
