Creating Alerts in Reconciliation Compliance

You can create an alert on a reconciliation or transaction in Reconciliation Compliance.

To create an alert:

  1. Use one of the following methods:
    • Navigate to the artifact (reconciliation or alert), open and then click Alerts.

    • Raise a general alert from the Alerts List, which is only associated with a period.

  2. Click New (+).
  3. Enter a unique Name for the alert, for example, Data Issue.
  4. From Type, select an Alert Type from the list of administrator-defined Alert Types, for example, Basic Alert.


    When you select an Alert Type, your alert will inherit any instructions, workflow users, attributes, questions, and viewers defined in that Alert Type.

  5. Optional: From Period, select a period from the list of Period values. If the alert is created from an object that already has a Period associated with it, this value cannot be changed.
  6. From the Priority list, select a priority for the alert: High, Medium, or Low.
  7. Optional: In Restriction, leave the default (None) or choose from the drop down list.
  8. The Owner is the name of the user creating the Alert.

  9. The Assignee is the person responsible for resolving the alert. This may be a user or team. The default assignee is inherited from the Alert Type. You must specify an Assignee.

  10. The Approver is inherited from the Alert Type.

  11. For End Date, specify a Due Date for the alert. This is usually populated based on the object the alert was created on. You must set an End Date.
  12. For Description, enter a description for the alert, for example "Data has been corrupted".
  13. Optional: To add references to support the alert description:
    1. Click Attach a File, select and attach a file, and click OK.
    2. Click Attach a Link, enter a URL name, then enter the URL, for example: Oracle, and click OK.
  14. To create the alert, click OK.

    When you click OK in the Create Alert dialog, the Alert Actions dialog will open in "Open with Owner" status.

    The Owner can then run Submit to change it to "Open with Assignee" status, or Close (X) the dialog.
