Admin Alerts

To use this feature, you need the Administrator PermissionsAdmin AlertsConfigure Alert Types permission.

You can configure the system to automatically acknowledge (auto-acknowledge) specific admin alerts after a defined amount of time.

For some admin alert types, the module specific applications have enabled the feature to acknowledge alerts. This is applicable for the following alert types:

  • Time Valuation
  • Periodic Time Account Update
  • Employee Time Calendar Creation
  • Termination End Handling Alert
  • Processing Paired Time Events for Time Sheet
  • Absence Segmentation
  • Reallocate Absences
  • Time Collector

For these alert types, you can now define an amount of time after which an alert is acknowledged automatically (auto-acknowledged). The applications define a maximum value after that, an alert is auto-acknowledged.

Up to the maximum value, you can configure the system individually with an amount of time specific to your requirements. After that, an alert is set to auto-acknowledged.

In the current version, the alert table includes an Auto-Acknowledged column. In the Configure Alert Type popup, you can now set the number of days after which alerts are auto-acknowledged. There's also a Retract Acknowledgment feature that you can use to revoke the auto-acknowledgment.
