A user is notified about an upcoming decision, allowing them time to review, adjust or cancel it. For example, decisions might include automatically saving money or switching between mobile networks.
- Gives users control and awareness over automated decisions
- Low friction for the user, especially if it’s a regular decision or event. If everything’s ok it requires no action
- Relies on the user seeing the notification to be able to act on it
- User needs to understand the reason for automated decision to decide whether to change it
- Inappropriate if the decision is unexpected or higher risk, as the default is for the decision to go ahead
