Engage Digital | Adding notifications

Notifications are alerts that display for agents or for specific user groups. Notifications are based on the different requests that are available in the platform. These notifications can be configured with different message thresholds and other metrics.
When configuring notifications, ensure that you indicate the channel. Otherwise, agents may receive alerts for channels they are not assigned to.

Notification configuration options

When you’re creating a notification, you’ll have access to a variety of configuration options, which can be found in the Create a Notification configuration page. Let’s review the configuration options available when creating a notification:
  • Label: Names the notification. This is the name that recipients see when the notification triggers
  • Query: Specifies one or more search queries that trigger the notification. For some queries you will be prompted to enter values such as true or false, or to filter on information such as an agent’s name. For more information on building queries, visit Using search queries
  • Alert periodicity: Specifies an appropriate alert frequency. You must specify the time in minutes or hours. The minimum frequency of the alert is 5 minutes. If the alert is set to 1 hour, the alert displays every hour to the agents
  • Business hour periodicity: Generates alerts only during business hours
  • Threshold: Specifies the minimum number of messages that must match the query to trigger the alert
  • Restricted to role: Restricts access to the folder based on specified roles
  • Restricted to team: Restricts access to the folder based on specified teams
  • Restricted to agents: Restricts access to the folder based on specified agents
  • Recovery notification: Specifies receiving a notification when the condition is no longer triggered
