Email Groups offer a streamlined way to manage recipient lists for notifications and reports within vuSmartMaps. Instead of manually entering individual email addresses, users can add recipients to these groups, simplifying the process. This feature also centralizes recipient list management and updates in one location. The Email Groups page provides the following benefits:
In vuSmartMaps, Email Groups are particularly useful when you need to send emails to multiple recipients for various scenarios like alert notifications or scheduled reports. Instead of managing individual email addresses at multiple locations, Email Groups allow you to consolidate and manage recipient lists in one place.
For example, if multiple alert rules require notifications to be sent to the support team, configuring each rule with the full list of email addresses can become cumbersome. Additionally, when team members change, updating multiple alert rules can be time-consuming. By using Email Groups, you configure the rules to use these groups as recipient lists. When changes occur, simply update the Email Group with the new email addresses, making life easier for IT ops personnel.
Mobile Groups offer centralized management and updates of recipient lists, simplifying the process of sending alerts and reports via SMS. This feature enhances operational efficiency by providing a straightforward way to communicate through SMS. The Mobile Groups feature provides the following advantages:
