See also: Configuring Custom Properties
The default values for system notifications sent using email can be configured in
custom.properties for the following notification types. Each email notification can be set to one of the following intervals:
These parameters set the default (global) value, not the value used by a particular user. If a user does not set a preference, then the global value is used. If the user has set a preference, then the user's preference is maintained.
In order to update a global notification setting, after Appian has already initialized default settings for each user, complete the following (the transaction log must be completely cleared before the change is fully applied to all users):
The following table summarizes the notification types that can be set in a
custom.properties file. The updated values are only used if the end user does not change his or her alert settings.
After applying these changes to
custom.properties, the new properties only take effect after the services are started twice, or the next time a new server becomes the primary (in a distributed configuration).
The following properties take
server.conf.notifications as a prefix. Unless otherwise noted, the default value for these properties is "immediate."

|The maximum number of people that a notification is sent out to. This is defaulted to 100. For example, if there are 1000 people who should be notified, then 10 separate notifications will be sent, with each notification being sent to 100 recipients, assuming that this property is set to 100.
