In-app notifications in model-driven apps (preview)

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

In-app notifications allow you to receive notifications in the notification center of your model-driven app. Notifications are stored in the notification center until you dismiss them or when they expire. By default, notifications expire in 14 days but your system administrator can modify the expiration date.


  • This is a preview feature, and isn't available in all regions. Your administrator needs to enable early access to use the new app notifications feature.
  • Preview features aren’t meant for production use and may have restricted functionality. These features are available before an official release so that customers can get early access and provide feedback.

You only see notifications when you're using an app. That's when the system runs a check and displays any new notification. Notifications are at the organization level so you'll see notifications in the app you're using for all apps in your environment.

Notification center

  • The notification bell icon shows the count of new notifications. When you open the notification center the count is cleared. To access your notifications, select the bell icon on the nav bar.

    Sample notifications in your app.

  • To dismiss and delete a notification, select the close X button on a notification. Or, select Dismiss all to dismiss and delete all notifications.

    Select the close button to dismiss a notifications or select Dismiss all.

Toast notifications

Toast notifications appear temporarily to the left side of your app. When multiple notifications appear, they are stacked. When there's more than three toast notifications at the same time, you'll get a toast letting you know that there's more notifications.
