A Notification Trigger is an e-mail notification for selected groups of agents on an interval basis. A single trigger can be created for an entire group of agents. The notification will be an e-mail sent to the e-mail addresses specified in the trigger configuration. The current triggers are shown in the "Notification > Triggers" page.
When creating a New Trigger , you are asked some questions including the agents and groups that will be included in the notification. The " Notification Interval " choices are Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Immediate. You can set a custom subject, message text, etc. When done configuring click the Add button.
Once a New Trigger is added you can "View" or "Delete" the existing trigger by clicking on the buttons on the right-side of the screen in the Action column. To Edit you can click the View button.
