OpenCart Event Notifications(Alerts)

One of the exciting features introduced in OpenCart 2.0 is the Alerts section, available in the admin panel.  In an earlier post I have given you a brief idea about this particular section and here we will go into more depth of that feature.

When admin log into admin panel he will be able to see this Alerts section in to upper right corner of admin panel account. It normally looks like this without any alerts.
