Banner Notifications

SFx Asset Management provides you with the following types of notifications on the Home page or in the header of the asset detail view.

Site-wide Notifications

Site-wide notifications, such as a new release announcement, a maintenance notification, an upgrade notification, a fault notification, etc. For instance, all users will see a banner notification at the top of the screen when downtime has been scheduled for maintenance of the SFx system.


Example: Site Fault Notification

Organization-specific Notifications

Organization-specific notifications, such as PRO subscription alerts, SFx Desktop upgrade notifications, etc. Only the users in the corresponding organization will receive these notifications.

The PRO subscription alert notification is set to display in three stages.

  • Stage 1: A 60 days remaining reminder prior to the expiry date of a PRO/PRO Trial subscription

  • Stage 2: A 30 days remaining reminder prior to the expiry date of a PRO/PRO Trial subscription

  • Stage 3: A 7 days remaining reminder prior to the expiry date of a PRO/PRO Trial subscription


Your PRO asset will be downgraded to Lite on the very expiry date, and you’ll get a final email notification. Click the hyperlink Purchase a new subscription or Renew your subscription to contact Hexagon Support for new PRO subscriptions.
