Alerting Visitors to changes of your Tablet
Summary: As a Slate Editor, you may want to alert your visitors that content on your pages has changed, but first you must set up your page to accept subscribers. Once visitors have subscribed to your Tablet, you will be able to alert them of changes as desired. When visitors are notified of changes they receive an email with a link directing them back to your Tablet.
Setting the Tablet Change
Notification Subscription option on your Slate pages allows your
visitors to sign up to be notified via email if the content of your
Slate changes. This is particularly valuable when updating class
calendars, homework lists, exam schedules, class newsletters etc.

When a visitor clicks the link, a simple

changes and submit them, you will see a link directly under the page
