On the Notifications tab, you can configure sending of notifications about the service status changes to external servers, the Telegram messenger or email, as well as enable or disable sending of already created notifications. Apart from the fleet administrators, this tab is available to the users who have the right to create, edit, and delete notifications.

For each notification, its name is displayed in the list, as well as the address of the server, Telegram Bot API path or email. Next to each notification, there is the icon  that opens its properties, and the switch that turns the notification on and off. The icon  indicates that there are errors while activating notifications. If their number reaches 20, the switch becomes inactive. When you hover the mouse cursor over the icon, a tooltip pops up with information on the number of errors and the total number of activations.

Click Create notification to set up a new notification.

The following tags are available: service object name, service name, description, start date, end date, status, term of completion, mileage at the moment of notification sending, engine hours at the moment of notification sending. The selected tag is displayed on a new line and an editable description is added before it.
