Service Alert Management

The Service Alert Management tool allows you to create, edit, and archive important service alerts.

Service Alert Table

You can filter the table with the following three options: Show All Alerts, Show Open Alerts, and Show Archived Alerts.

  • Last Modified On: The date a Service Alert was last modified.
  • Last Modified By: Who modified a Service Alert last.
  • Actions: This column displays the Edit and Archive option. Please see the Edit a Service Alert section for more details on what information is available for editing.
