Pulse - Create New Alert


To create a new Alert, Pulse has to be enabled on your account. You should must be authorized to https://pulse.ringcentral.com. You must be authorized to Contact Center in Pulse.

 NOTE: Alerts that you create for configuration changes are not shared with other users.

New Alert Configuration

To create a new Alert:

1. Click the Create Alert button.

2. Choose the Alert Type.

When you select the new Alert type you are guided to the Alert configuration wizard where you have to specify the Alert properties: 

1. At “What to Monitor” you should specify conditions that trigger an Alert notification when Contact Center data meet them. Each condition line describes a condition for a specific data element. Condition lines are united by the AND operation. You may specify several values in the value field. Values specified in the same line are united by the OR operation.

2. At the “What To Show” tab you should specify context information; i.e., which data elements must be included into the Alert message to provide you with additional information on what has happened. 

3. At the “How Often” tab you should specify the frequency of Contact Center data validation in the Alert Interval field and the retrospective interval in the Monitor Interval field (for historical Alerts). 
You may select one of three algorithms in the “Notification Frequency” section that would define the frequency of your informing on Alert execution in Glip. 

4. At the “Where To Send” tab you get the list of Glip teams that you are a member of. It is recommended to configure required teams in Glip in advance. You should check off the teams to which an Alert will be sent. The Pulse bot will be automatically added into the selected group. 

5. At the “Save & Preview” tab you specify a descriptive Alert name and may see an Alert notification preview. The Alert notification preview is not based on the real Contact Center data and is provided so that you can examine the Alert structure and appearance to be sure it meets your expectations. If you save an Alert and activate it, Pulse will start Contact Center data monitoring immediately. Otherwise you may save an Alert without activation and activate it later from the main page of Pulse.

There are several examples of Alert configuration:

● How to monitor Agents states using the “Agents Snapshot Alert”
● How to monitor the skill Service Level using Pulse Alerts
● How to detect with Contact Alert if the contact stays too long in a specific state
