1. Communicating with Non-Subscribed Recipients

A Non-subscribed recipient is a trading partner who is not subscribed to this service.
Non-Subscribed Recipients which have been added to a Live notification will receive an email containing a link to a summarized notification. 

You can view what these notifications will look like from the automatic emails sent to you when you submit a notification for approval and when you make a notification live.

Information on which Non-Subscribed Recipients have accessed your notification will update in real time on your notification's Progress Report.

Also see Adding Non-Subscribed Recipients.

What do Notifications to Subscribed Recipients look like?

Notifications sent to Subscribed Recipients will look identical to what your Notification looks like to you, excluding any information to regulators or information for specific organisations (e.g. information entered into the 'Additional Information' menu).

Can a Non-Subscribed Recipient reply to my notification?

Unlike Subscribed Recipients, Non-Subscribed Recipients cannot log into the service and cannot reply directly to your notification. This is why it is important to include any contact information you would like to share in the Instructions for Non-Subscribed Recipients section of your notification.
