The Alarms feature expands the Asset Notification feature to be an 'Alarm' mechanism with several alarm situations.┬á
Unlike the Asset Notification feature, Alarms are created only if a user has defined an Alarm Type.┬á The Alarm Type defines the Location, Situation and Alarm Level which will enable one or more Alarms to be created when the Situation is triggered.
There are 2 basic alarm categories: Alarms that are triggered by a date and those that are triggered by an action a user or web service has performed in the OBTAIN database.┬á At this time there are 2 dates that can cause alarm┬átriggers:┬á the Asset Notification Date mentioned in the previous section and the Lease Expiry date.┬á (Both set on the Warranty/Maintenance page of the Asset Dialog).
