Creating Alert Types

You can create alert types to group alerts into categories, such as hardware failure, software issues, system failures, and so on.

You can use alert types to classify and filter alerts in the Report Binder. Using alert types, you can analyze the types of issues that users encounter during the close cycle and make changes to prevent them in future cycles.

  To create an alert type:

  1. Select Manage, and then Alert Types.

  2. Click New.

  3. For Name, enter an alert type name.

  4. For Description, enter an alert type description.

  5. Click Enabled to enable the alert type.

  6. Click OK to save the alert type.
