+    <para>The Alerts area of the Dashboard in the &PRODUCT; UI shows notifications
about new
+      Citrix XenServer software updates as they become available. In this way, administrators
+      can more easily be aware and take action when a hotfix is required to keep the XenServer
+      hypervisor hosts up to date. &PRODUCT; gives notification only for hotfixes that
+      applicable to the XenServer software version currently running on hosts within the
+      cloud. Before generating the alert, &PRODUCT; checks to be sure the hotfix has
+      already been installed.</para>
+    <para>In addition to the alert in the Dashboard, all hotfixes available for XenServer
+      in the cloud are displayed under Events, when you open the Select View dropdown and
+      choose Host Updates. You can also see the hotfixes available for a given host when
+      you're viewing the host details (Infrastructure > Hosts > click host name), where
+      will see the Updates tab. </para>
