setting notification

I'm reaching out to inquire about the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines) regarding the ability for users to customize their notification
preferences and channels, such as through email or a bell icon in the
header of an application or portal.

I have thoroughly reviewed the WCAG guidelines but have not found specific
references to this particular functionality. Therefore, I would like to
understand if there is a specific rule that indicates how to enable users
to configure notifications and choose their preferred channels of delivery.

If there is no specific rule, can I assume that the ability to customize
notifications is primarily considered a matter of user experience and
common sense in implementation?

I would greatly appreciate any additional information you can provide on
this topic or any specific resources or guidelines that may be helpful in
this situation.

Thank you in advance for your time and support.

Best regards, Francesco Mammetti
