Re: New Notification History and Rules Feature in JAWS 2022

Hi Bill!

I would too. I would think that only the rules file would be exported as they would be something you might want to import into other JAWS installations, where as the history is going to be machine and session specific so there wouldn't be much of a point to importing it anywhere.

I can see how that history might be useful to tech support if the situation warrants a look at it though.

Hi, Gene. I would be interested to know if the notification history and the rules are exported when using the Import/Export Settings feature of Utilities.

Thanks for that! I was just wondering where those files were. I would
have expected the rules file to be in with my settings where they could
easily be backed up if desired.
