For more details see the way the Out of Stock Notification for Magento 2 extension works.
The module allows your customers to subscribe and receive notifications on price and inventory updates. And let you have more information on subscribers preferences and demands.
To configure the extension settings, go to Stores → Configuration → Out of Stock Notifications.
Use Configurable Image - When subscription, display the image of the configurable product instead of simple on the account page.
Greeting Text for Email - Specify greeting text for out of stock notifications.
Minimum Stock Quantity - If the option is disabled, the notification will be sent once the product status is changed to In Stock. You can also set the option to Yes and specify the minimum stock quantity that will trigger notification sending.
To send a test notification:
Show Options of Out of Stock Configurable - Set ‘Yes’ to allow customers to subscribe to an ‘out of stock' configuration (simple out of stock products) of the ‘out of stock’ Configurable Product.
Allow Subscription for Selected Group(s) - Select one or several customer groups that will receive stock availability notifications.
Limit Emails by Product Qty - Enable the feature in case you want to align the number of emails to the quantity of the back-in-stock items.

Enable Subscribe from Category Page - Set to Yes to add a subscription link to the out-of-stock products on the catalog pages.
