Alert Center


 






Link an Alert Center Item to a Web Address

 

Overview

You can now direct Alert Center widgets, and your Alert Bar to point to any custom web addresses without users first having to visit the Alert Center. In the Alert Center, you will be able to select which link “Read On” directs to when creating each alert.

 

Important Notes

  • This option is default false
  • Once selected for one web address, the option will be disabled for any additional links
