The Notifications and Review Board Guide provides information about the notification system in ICE. This guide helps you understand the notifications in your ICE file. Additionally, it shows you how you can use Review Board to review, track, and resolve them.
Notifications indicate when additional action is required or extra information is available for specific items in your ICE file. A notification may simply provide you with information. However, it may also require you to take action to modify or provide information about specific items in your ICE file. For example, a notification may tell you that an item is not valid as specified. Therefore, you must update the item before completing your design in ICE.
The notification type determines your response to the notification.
There are three notification types:
•Action Required Notifications: Appear when your ICE file has issues that you must review and address before you can submit it.
•FYI Notifications: Provide extra information about conditions in your ICE file and often address aesthetic or lead-time issues.
•Tension Notifications: Appear when there is a mismatch between your original design intent and the current specification for an item in your design.
