Alerts are used by admins to communicate urgent time-sensitive or required information to the entire organization or specific groups as events unfold. Bad weather, unexpected closures and serious unplanned events are easier to manage and navigate with alerts. Alerts also play an important role in notifying employees of updates as critical events unfold.
Communicate business changes or disruption with ease with nearly 20 alert templates or create a custom alert template to match the needs of the business. Pre-shipped templates include alerts for criminal or bomb threats, civil disturbances, inclement weather or snow warnings natural disasters warnings, road closures, power or IT outages, cyber breach, and more.
Reach 100% of your team or workforce by utilizing multiple delivery channels – Text/SMS, Mobile Push Notifications, Mobile/Web App Popup, Web App Banner, Desktop App Push Notification, or Email. Alert Posts are pushed in real-time, even if recipient notifications are turned ‘off’ for posts. Alerts also appear in the posts and podcasts widgets on the dashboard.
Admins get access to full insights on every alert post with a list of users who have or have not read/acknowledged the alert. Easily get day-by-day reports and download full insights in XLS format for detailed analysis or sharing. Based on this information, admins can choose to resend an alert to those who have not viewed it, and even add delivery methods.
