Email Notifications

Automatic email notifications enhance communication and help streamline the work flow process. Each user role in Incident has a list of automatic email notifications that are available for activation. When an email notification is turned on, it will apply globally to all users in that role. *Note: If a user does not want to receive the automatic email notifications selected for their role, they can turn off the feature under their personal participant information.

How to Activate Email Notifications

  • Click on the Account Setup tab.
  • Click on the Manage Email Notifications link, or hover your mouse over the Shortcuts menu and click on Manage Email Notifications from the list.
  • Check each notification you would like to activate for each role. *Note: To view a sample of the email, click on the Sample link.
  • Click Submit at the bottom of the page to save.
