It was recently announced that IBM My Notifications was successfully updated at the end of November. The release includes new features and improvements for you, our clients, to make the application more efficient and effective! The major call out for this release is noted below:
This update enables the translation of the web user interface, and notification messages to 9 languages ( including Japanese, Chinese – traditional & simplified, Korean, French, German, Italian, Spanish & Portugal – Brazil).
The translation capability is now included within:
Web Folders – based on User Interface selections. The language displayed will be based on the country selected in the IBM masthead at the top of the web page, or the preferred language selection in your IBM profile, or the language setting in your browser - in that order.
E-mails – translated content only – Content will be translated to the language identified in the preferred language selection in your IBM profile.
Syndication Feeds (RSS/Atom)
Note: Not all languages are available at this time. If your preferred language is not available, notifications and the user interface will continue to be displayed in English.
This new translation capability should help make My Notifications even more useful for our global clients and those who want to consume content in their preferred languages. In addition to the translation improvements, the User Interface has also been updated to match our recently released Support Portal standards and templates
And don't forget, withMyNotifications you can be notified via email and/or RSS feed when support content, downloads, flashes, fixes, webcasts, and other product information is published. Let our content come to you, set up your subscriptions here today: http://www.ibm.com/support/mynotifications
One of my favorite ways to stay up-to-date with new and updated Rational support content is through My Notifications.
With My Notifications you can receive daily or weekly announcements through e-mail, custom Web pages and RSS feeds. These customizable communications can contain important news, new or updated support content, such as publications, hints and tips, technical notes, product flashes (alerts) and downloads and drivers. The tool allows you to customize and categorize the products you want to monitor and any of the available delivery methods to suit your support needs.
Benefits and features
The My Notifications subscription service offers many benefits over the previous MySupport feature:
Options for frequency of notification. E-mails can be sent weekly or daily.
You can select HTML or Text formatted e-mail notifications.
Ability to choose delivery with RSS, using your favorite RSS reader.
You can create personal Web folders to store and view your notifications, providing an automatic archive of past notices.
Subscription formats are consistent with the content on the product support site, making subscription choices clearer.
You will be able to subscribe to product notifications directly from some product support pages.
IBM support can now use the My Notifications tool to immediately notify you of critical technical support issues. Signing up for "Flash" documents will ensure you are immediately notified of these issues, regardless of your daily or weekly subscription settings for normal support documents.
