Defining Alert Thresholds

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Add an alert threshold in SAP Fieldglass.

Thresholds - Alert

Alert Thresholds are used to notify users of specific events before or when they occur.

When an alert threshold is met, a message is sent or displayed to the specified users when the related message is enabled. Brian, for example, may get a notice when a worker’s end date is approaching.

Thresholds - Alert Details page

The Threshold Alert page lists the tasks to which thresholds can be set. These thresholds can be edited, but new items cannot be added and existing items cannot be deleted.

2The Threshold column indicates the thresholds that are set for the respective items. These parameters can be edited.
3Threshold Type indicates how the threshold is measured. Many can be toggled between hours or days. Others are set to measure a percentage.
4Some Threshold Types can include a range of parameters. These will be listed in a table format in the Threshold column and indicate the five possible ranges that can be set. As indicated here, alerts will be posted at 5 days before, 3 days before, 2 days before, and on the date of event. These Threshold Type Range parameters can be edited as well.

Create an Alert Threshold

WorkingNet wants to add alert threshold values based on SOW Spending.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, it’s your job to add that alert threshold.
