If you receive a notification that a savings account has been created then
you account already has permissions to activate or approve a saving account

Can you send me a link to the hosted demo3 server so I can try it out?

The is no special UI configuration needed for a user to configure
notification. What actually happens is; When a user selects a role, He/She
is subcribed to the listen to notifications for the permissions in that
role. For example, if a user has a role called Admin and Admin has
permissions New Savings Account Approved, then when ever a new Savings
account is created a notification will be sent to that user because
Creating a new saving emitts events to notify any user have permissions to
approve a new savings account

Most of the work I did was backend intensive. Notifications are sent only
to the users with permissions to act on that notification.
