Mass Notification and User Contact Updates [Show All]
A new option for Mass Notification to user contacts is available
for email, text messaging, and push notifications. The Mass
Notification feature allows for a 'blanket' rule to send to all
primary, secondary, tertiary, or other priority user contacts without
needing to specify each user individually in the rule action.
there is now also a parameter added to allow for restricting the
notification to occur only to users which have last accessed the Site
referenced in the event within a time period. This way if the
notification occurs during 3rd shift it doesn't notify users which were
last there in the first shift, for example. This application
works solely from a time specification but if you install 'Exit'
readers and the users swipe to leave the building, a new option on the
Dealer Site allows the areas assigned to those 'Exit' readers to clear
their activity. This means exiting the building will immediately
disregard the user from the Mass Notification processing.
priority setting has been added for user contacts. Those
priorities are: primary, secondary, tertiary, and other. This
helps when assigning a user contact to a notification since when
applying it, the priority will be shown so you know which one to use
for the best effect of the rule.
Lastly to assist with
configuring push notifications, we've added a Test feature located
where the push address is shown for the user's contacts. This
allows you to send a quick push notification test to easily identify
the device referenced in the push address.
