Difference between Alerts & Notifications:
While people generally refer to “Alerts” and “Notifications” interchangeably, it is a common misconception that both terms mean the same.
An “Alert” is a signal prompting the user that their attention is required and they should look at something. Common examples are :- Success / Fail Message, Perimeter warning, sound etc.
A “Notification” might be sent in various formats like email, SMS etc and will usually contain more information than an “Alert”.

Administration of Console Alerts:
Part of our cloud based time & attendance management system, various kinds of Console Alerts can be set up on the web application by users with Administrator Privileges.
Some of the types Console Alerts which can be setup are:
Alert before Login Time:
Administrators can set up alerts to ensure employee & staff members are sent messages to alert them that they are supposed to login to work as the appointed time appears closer. Administrators can set up the lead time as required. For e.g. If a workday in an Organization starts at 9:30 AM daily, staff members can be sent alerts at 9:00 Am that their schedule starts at 9:30 AM and also intimate them to login on time.
Alert for Mandatory Allocated Tasks:
In varying cases, Organizations require different staff members to perform certain tasks and some can be mandatory in nature. Palgeo’s console alerts enable the Administrators to set up Mandatory Tasks” for each employee or staff group or members of a particular designation. For e.g. An Educational Institute wants the examination halls setup before the examination date. The institute wants this task to be assigned to all staff who are “Professors” and must set this up as a “Mandatory Task”. Another typical example would be In a manufacturing plant, at the end of each work day, some supervisors are mandatorily required to conduct some safety inspections before closure of the plant.
Mandatory tasks once allocated to a particular employee can be tracked till closure.
Alert for Perimeter Violation & Location Mapping:
Palgeo’s Geofencing based Attendance application enables Administrators to set up Console Alerts whenever any of their employees are during working hours are stepping out of the campus perimeter.
