Web Alerts allow you a centralized place to welcome new users and communicate your business hours, special events or other timely and important information. Ares by default includes two types of web alerts:
- System Alerts are located on the Main Menu page and are visible when the user logs into the web interface.
- Static Alerts are located on the Login page and include the New to Ares? and A Static Alert sections.
System alerts are created in the client and can be created for all users or for a specific user, user type or user status. There are also several default system alert messages that are created based on customization settings. Static alerts are created in the HTML pages and are edited and deleted from within those HTML pages. This section discusses system alerts. Because they are often referred to simply as web alerts, that is the term we will use here.
