Harmonize notifies you when there is new activity in a discussion, allowing students and instructors to keep up to date on discussion activity. These notifications are consolidated into an Activity Stream located under the Bell Icon in the Harmonize navigation menu. Notifications are global across all courses enrolled and you can access the notification settings from any Harmonize Topic or Assignment.

NOTE: Due to LTI limitations, Harmonize notifications only appear in Harmonize interfaces and are separate from your LMS notifications.
