There are 4 types of notifications that can be assigned to events;

  1. Notification + Email sends both an in-app notification and an email to the recipients in case of the event occurrence.

  2. Email sends an email to the recipients in case of the event occurrence.

  3. Notification sends an in-app notification to the recipients in case of the event occurrence.
