Add Default Alerts

 Alerts bring attention to tickets by flashing red or highlighting in red. This is a great way to ensure that important tickets are not overlooked and are resolved quickly.

User Type & Roles

To perform this action in ALICE, the user must have at least Hotel Admin User Type access.

Things to Consider

  • Alerts are exclusively visible on ALICE Desktop (web). 

  • Alerts are optimized for individual tickets only. Tickets set as repeating or roll over will not carry over alert settings at this time. 

  • Hotel Admins can configure default alert settings that apply across all ticket types for the property. Property alert default settings are found in ALICE Admin.

  • Hotel Admins can configure default alert settings for individual Services or ticket types. Alert defaults set on the Service level will override the property alert defaults set on the Hotel Info page.

  • Alerts can be set as defaults (as shown in the steps below) or set on individual tickets. To add an alert on an individual ticket, select the bell icon and choose an alert time (Alert times are relative to the ticket due date).
