When configuring notifications you select a context. Either by a dropdown in the user profile or depending on which group is selected in the configurations view. This context determines from which devices you will receive notifications. If you select a machine or a gateway, you'll receive notifications from that particular device. To receive notifications related to multiple devices you can select a folder higher up in the hierarchy.
Notify when-setting determines when you'll be notified. For example when a gateway connects or disconnects. Some filters have additional settings, like the
Alarm/Event state chagned type allows you to filter which alarms in detail that you want to be notified about.
It is possible to connect a schedule to notifications if you only want to receive notifications at specific times. To do that you first need to create a schedule under the schedules tab.
Configurations on groups
Notifications can be configured for multiple roles and/or users by adding a configuration on a group in the configuration view. These configurations can be seen but cannot be edited by users in their user profile.
Configurations under your user profile
You can also configure notifications under your user profile. This configuration is personal and managed by the user. It cannot be changed elsewhere.
