Currently, there are many timely events, status's and tasks within the application that occur. These events are critical to the success of workflows but the user is not adequately notified of the failure, success or status of many of these events.

The Notification Drawer allows the users to get live updates to tasks through the use of toast notifications, an alert badge in the masthead, as well as an expandable drawer that allows users to obtain more information about the event.

In this implementation we are opting for a circle badge vs. a numerical badge as the number of notifications may be not be practical.
Additional discussion should be held around the content of the notification drawer.
