Contact Information

The Contact Information pane allows you to add various contact methods for the user, which are then later used in Alert Timelines. However, only email is required.

Alert Types

For each email address and phone number provider, you can set which alert types that specific contact method receives

Alert Type
Description

Clear (All Clear)

All Clear messages are sent by default when an incident resolves

Ack (Acknowledgement)

Acknowledgement alerts are sent to all users when a member of their team acknowledges an alert - if they have previously received an alert about an incident. Think of it as someone saying "I've got it"

Broadcast

Messages can be broadcast to other team members in order to communicate about an incident.
