Create Alarm Types
When a new alarm type is created, you must first select the language version, the name of the alert, an abbreviation (short key), the sort key, the priority, a description, and an icon.
They should be unique to avoid confusion.
You must also decide whether it is an alarm or information.
The sort key determines at which position the alarm button will appear in the EVALARM App.
For all functions in EVALARM: The higher the sort key, the higher up the function.
You can choose between priority 1, 2 or 3. This has an influence on the sorting of the active and stopped alerts. This means, when there are several active or stopped alerts, the alarms of alarm types with a higher priority are displayed further up.
In addition you have the possibility to stop several active alerts of priority 3 simultaneously with multi-selection in the App as well as in the web cockpit.
Furthermore you can connect an alarm type to one or more building sectors. As a result you have the possiblity to select this structure when creating an alarm. The connecting can also be done in the building sector.
Next you have the possibilty to upload an attachment to the alarm type. This attachment is provied to the users in the active alert and can be opened under the section "Details".
