Responding to Alerts from a Mobile Device

From the Alert Detail screen you can respond to a particular alert by:

  • acknowledging the alert if you think that you can resolve the problem;
  • putting the datasource instance in SDT if someone forgot to SDT it earlier or if a solution isn't possible; or
  • escalating the alert to the next person in the escalation chain if you are unable to resolve the problem.

Acknowledge

Acknowledge the alert by clicking 'Acknowledge' - the Alert Details will subsequently reflect that the alert has been acknowledged:
