Preset Alert VariaBles - Quick Ways to Customize Your Notifications
Alertus’ Preset Alert Variables are used with automated events, such as weather alerts, data feeds, and panic buttons to include event-specific information in the alert without any input from the dispatcher. For example, variables can be used when someone triggers a desktop panic button from their office and a dispatcher wants to pull the person’s name and location from the incident submission into the alert text. Another possible use is for an integrated NOAA weather alert. Instead of displaying the entire body of the NOAA alert, which can be very lengthy, you can configure your notification to just display the alert headline and date.
Getting Started with Preset Alert Variables
Step 1: To see what information is available for Preset Alert Variables, go into your Alertus Console and navigate to your previously sent alerts. From here you can click into your Event Dashboard and click on any past event. The screenshot example shown is using a panic button activation event. Every item you see in bold is a potential variable that can be used to provide valuable information. For our example, we’ll use "Building," "Room," and "Name."
