How To Videos


Creating a Distribution List

This video explains how to create and manage an Employee Alerts distribution list:

  • Defining distribution lists in advance simplifies the sending process
  • Each distribution list can be named to easily identify the audience it represents
  • Employees are grouped by location
  • Any combination of email and available SMS numbers can be added to a distribution list
  • Distribution lists are reusable and editable
  • Multiple lists can be maintained for different audiences

Sending an Employee Alert

This video explains how to send Employee Alerts:

  • Each message must be given a name for future reference
  • Selecting a distribution list determines who will receive the alert
  • The alert will include a brief subject and text letting the recipient know they have a message waiting
  • When the user follows the link in the alert they will see the message
  • The recipient can optionally be asked to confirm receipt of the message
  • When the recipient confirms, additional information - or a simple ‘thank you’ - can be conveyed in response to the acknowledgment
  • A web link or telephone number link can be added to the acknowledgment response
  • The link allows the recipient to access additional information or easily call for assistance


This video explains how the Alerts work:

  • An alert provides a link to the message
  • Clicking on the link allows the recipient to view - and if requested - respond to the alert
  • The date and time the recipient confirmed the receipt of the alert is recorded for future use
  • Additional information can be presented when the recipient confirms receipt of the alert
  • The Alert confirmation message can include a web link or telephone number

Employee Alert Reporting

This video explains the Employee Alert Reporting capabilities:

  • A searchable list of alerts sent is maintained
  • Notification history shows the recipients for each alert
  • An acknowledgment timestamp is shown where applicable
  • The result can be filtered on multiple fields
  • The data can be exported to CSV
