Appointment request emails

Hello again, sorry to be asking so many questions on these forums!

In the back end of appointments+ for the option "Allow service provider confirm own appointments", I selected "Yes". Are service providers supposed to be sent an email to their address whenever a new appointment request is made? I feel like I thought I saw somewhere that such is the case, but none of the providers I've set up have been sent emails when this happens. Sorry if I missed something, I just wanted to make sure - otherwise I'll have to custom code something in so that providers are sent emails when a new request is made. Thank you so much for putting up with all my questions!
