Configure Pulse Push Notifications


To ensure that you receive up-to-date information, Brightspace Pulse sends push notifications for all new and updated notifications. This removes the need to manually check for notifications. Push notifications help to keep you informed about course-related updates from Announcements, Activity Feed, Grades, Quizzes, Assignments, and Content in Brightspace.

Here's How

  1. Sign in to Brightspace Pulse App using your MyOCC username and password.
  2. From the OCC Pulse D2L homepage, in the top left corner, tap the Oakland Community College icon.
