There are 3 steps in order to configure notifications properly:

  1. In the "System Setup", check the "Notification Delivery Settings".
  2. In the "Account Settings", create/edit notifications for later use.
  3. In an object's settings, create triggers that invoke your notifications.

For more information, please see manual section Notifications.
