Alerts Page

Overview

The Alerts tab allows you to send notifications to specified users or user groups when the threshold limits cross the limits as mentioned in the page. You can modify the thresholds by using the Edit button in the header. Notifications are sent via the SMTP settings in Suite Admin. For more information about SMTP settings, see Email Settings.

Budget Alerts

Budget alerts compare expenses against the budget allocated in the current quarter. Budget Alerts are applicable globally at a tenant level. These settings can be overridden on a per cost group level when creating a budget through the Alert Settings tab (see Allocate Budgets > Creating a budget).

Trend Alerts

Trend Alerts compare the expenditure and cost in the current quarter against the last quarter. 

The following table explains the significant fields in the Alerts page.
