Alert Functionality

Alert Functionality

1. We are not able to provide you historical data on changes to records from prior to day we install our alert because eAuto does not store this information from which we can pull from. Once we install the alert, then we start building our own comparison table to be able to report back to you from.

2. Workbook will only contain worksheet for each section IF there are changes/additions to report on. If no qualifying records for that worksheet (i.e. Contracts Created or Terminated or Contract Equipment or Items Updated), then no worksheet in workbook. Summary sheet indicates 1 or 0 (Yes or No) if worksheet included. 

Example below, there are 0/No Contract Equipment/Items Created nor Meter Groups Created, so no worksheets for those included in workbook:


3. Fields alert will report on if changes or new values made:


Contract, Customer, Customer Bill To, Customer Ovg Bill To, Contract Code, Bill Code, Lock Bill Code, Bill Group, Expiration Date, Expiration Copies, Exp Copies Exp Date, Base Cycle, Base Accrual Cycle, Base Rate, Base Sum Individual Rates, Lease Rate, Misc Charge Amount, Misc Charge Desc, Misc Charge GL, Misc Charge Dept, Bill Checkbox Enabled, Activated, Terminated, Renewed, Tax Code, Branch, Contract Lease, Terms, Sales Rep, Updator

4. If you enter Branch Number(s) in VariableW, then those listed in To/CC/BCC will receive ONE email for those branches. Individual emails for each Branch are no available. Use cloning function to facilitate separate email per branch.

5. Alert can be cloned, so you can have more than one subscription going to send to different recipients based on different variable/filter settings. VariableW MUST be different between clones; otherwise, the clones will NOT send.

Use +/Plus Sign to add clone:

Best Practices & Tips

Best Practices & Tips

1. Please see THIS POST on how last Updator determined for this report

2. Any auto escalations (to base, meter groups, etc.) will show the last Updator as the last person to actually select OK (Save) on the Contract Record. We have no way to report the change due to auto escalation.
