The communications module allows the administrators access to control the alerts & notifications at triggered event times based on the actions of users or automated algorithms.
Each module has a set of events that the administrator can choose to enable or disable notifications per trigger.
They can then customise the messages and set the method of communication i.e. SMS / Email / System Messages / Flex News Feed
There are other options available here with regards to notifications settings and then finally the administrator can choose to include interested parties by user group or individual profile.
This can then be further filtered based on the user access permissions as the administrator chooses.
This is a very comprehensive, customisable method to give complete control to the company with regards to notifications and as with all things Flex related, uses the company corporate branding.
