Alerts can be launched through the Scheduler Interface – a tool for setting up how the underlying template should be run, rendered and delivered. Different options are available based on application license, user license and publication/alert design choices.
- Slice Selections (what)
- Scheduled times (when)
- Trigger settings (whether)
- Distribution targets - portal, API or email (where)
- Security settings (who)
Once schedules are launched, the designated data tasks and sub-tasks will be run and produce rendered alerts. The alert listing will allow users with the right security level to see the progress, performance and output of their chosen alerts. The interfaces include color-coded status bars and lights to indicate outcomes.
Content is automatically delivered into the BI Office application Feeds page (portal). It can also be made accessible through the Web services API and/or emailed.
