An event attendee will receive notifications as a result of the following actions:
- Being added as an attendee.
- Joining an open RSVP event.

These notifications are sent regardless of whether channel or digital workplace notifications are disabled.
Email addresses used by notifications
By default, digital workplace notifications come from email addresses that share the same domain as the digital workplace. For example, notifications from https://customercare.igloosoftware.com use the domain.igloosoftware.com.
Users can manage their notifications from and instant subscriptions, disabling/enabling whether or not they receive these email notifications.
When users have multiple subscriptions to the same item, the subscription with the shortest frequency is the only one that will generate notifications. For example, a personal Weekly subscription will have priority over a Monthly group subscription, and the notification will be sent in the Weekly digest.
