7 {{info}}Since XWiki 9.3{{/info}} you can receive notifications in the top bar, under the Alert entry (represented by a bell). By default, users don't receive anything. They need to go to their profile preferences to select which kind of events (create, update, comment, etc...) they are interested in. You can find more information on the [[extensions:Extension.Notifications Application.WebHome]] page.
8
9 In the future, this application is meant to replace the [[Watchlist application>>extensions:Extension.Watchlist Application]] and thus it'll be able to send emails to the users when a notification happens, or on a hourly, daily, or weekly basis.

15 In XWiki you can subscribe to receive notifications either by RSS (the feed is automatically updated each time one of the followed pages gets changed) or by email. By using the [[Watchlist application>>extensions:Extension.Watchlist Application]] an user can add specific pages and spaces to a personal watchlist.
16
17 The watchlist application enables you to watch a page, a space, the entire Wiki and manage your Watchlist. Its features can be accessed easily by clicking on their corresponding button. The 4 available entries are:
18
19 * Watch this page: you follow modifications affecting the page you are currently viewing (available behind the "Page" menu)
20 * Watch the current space: you follow the modifications taking place on the whole space you are currently looking at (available behind the "Space" menu)
21 * Watch the current wiki: you follow modifications taking place on the whole wiki (available behind the "Wiki" menu)
22 * Manage your watchlist: change your notification preferences (available behind the "Profile" menu).
