Elements of the flow - Trigger alarm

The element Trigger alarm, triggers an alarm in the organisation in which the flow is executed.

Basic configuration of the alarm.

1️⃣ Trigger in an existing event: By default, each new alarm also automatically creates a new event. This function allows you to trigger an alarm in an existing event. Thus, no new event is then created when the alarm is triggered.
Instead of the event name, it is mandatory to enter the event ID. Only in this way can a unique assignment be made.

2️⃣ Event name: Defines the name of the event when it is triggered. If the function Trigger in an existing event is active, this field becomes the input for the event ID.

The Input function (rectangular symbol to the left of the input fields) allows you to access functions where data can be obtained automatically, e.g. from previous elements.

3️⃣ Alarm text: Defines the alarm text for the alarm. The document icon to the right of the input field allows you to select a text template.

4️⃣ Alarm Mode: Makes it possible to define the alerting mode for the alerting.

Resources or participants to be alerted.

⚠️ At least one of the resources must be specified in order to trigger an alarm. A multiple selection is also possible.

1️⃣ Alert all participants: This function allows you to alert all participants of your organisation within the scope of the alarm.

2️⃣ Scenarios: Allows you to alert scenarios.

3️⃣ Units: Enables alerting of units.

4️⃣ Unit with external ID: Enables alerting of a unit using the external ID.
For documentation on units, see here.

5️⃣ Label: Enables the alerting of participants with certain labels and the desired headcount. Additional labels can be added via the Add Label button.

6️⃣ Participants: Allows specific participants to be alerted.

7️⃣ Alarm template: Enables alerting of alarm templates.

Additional information
