Hi everyone — this may be a silly question, but on the UI there’s a page called “notifications” but I couldn’t find any documentation on how to “create” a notification or how it works.. can anyone shed some light to this please?

Hi @Bruno Murino - notifications are used by Prefect to update you on important changes in your account such as new team members or invitations; automation failures; paused tasks awaiting approval and public announcements.
If you want to set up a notification about flow states etc you can use the automations tab on the dashboard or cloud hooks in flow settings. (Or the relevant hook mutations).

So there’s no way to have a custom notification to appear in the UI?
Also, I think automations are only available on Cloud, not Server :(

Yes they are a Cloud only feature. What do you mean by custom notification?
There are Cloud Hooks in Server that support Prefect Messages

I couldn’t find hooks to create a Prefect Message, is there any documentation on it?

Hi Bruno - there is currently no mutation to create a custom Prefect Message/Notification. If you want to give more details of your use case we can maybe help you find a solution.
