Creating and Sending Alerts
Alerts are used for short messages that are needed to be sent quickly.
Any message that is under 500 characters can be sent as an alert.
In the app they display at the top of the news feed for all users in the priority colour they are set.
Notifications can be set up to be sent In-app, via SMS and/or Email. The great thing about alerts are that the SMS notification include the whole summary. Meaning action can be taken quickly.
NB. Notifications of the alert can be directed however the actual Alert will display on all users Communications feed.
