Alerts in NEO are completely user configurable. They can be used to popup alerts on the screen and optionally send emails. The Alert view at right shows all alerts during this session. Unacknowledged alerts are shown in a red background colour. An optional popup dialog has an Acknowledge button to acknowledge the latest unacknowledged alert. While there are unacknowledged alerts it will remain popped up.
The alerting system consist of Alert Variables which are basically queries, and Alerts which use the Alert Variables. The Alerts specify things like trigger values, conditions, alert sounds, email, To assist in developing alerts there is an option to comprehensively log all alert related activity. As shown in the screen shot at right it displays the step by step process in running and evaluating an alert.
