    • Alert Name - Name your alert (such as: "Wound selfie uploaded")
    • Alert Description - Describe what is being alerted
  6. Under Criteria, complete the following:

    • Check the box next to Alert if ANY of the following criteria are met? or leave it unchecked to have it Alert if ALL selected criteria are met.

    • Alert Criteria #1 – Click in this box and select a survey question you want to base your criteria on.

      • Set your Value Comparison (options available depend on the question being asked).
        • Equals
        • Does not equal
        • Less than

        • Greater than
        • Greater than or equal to
      • Set your Comparison Value (options available depend on the survey question, for instance, yes/no, no pain/slight pain/severe pain, and so on).
  7. To add more Alert Criteria, click the button. To delete an Alert Criteria, click the button.

    • Under Alert, fill out the following:

      • Alert Email Recipient – Type the email address of the person you wish to alert.

      • Alert Email Subject – Set the Subject line for the email (such as: "A patient has completed the post-surgical survey.") When you click in this box, the following tip appears: “Type ‘@’ to prompt embedding alert contextual values.” This allows you to select from the following preset links to include in the email:

        - Subject Identifier (the survey respondent’s unique identifier within the LifeOmic Platform system)
        - Survey ID (the name of the completed survey)
        - Subject Viewer Link (a link to the respondent’s subject viewer dashboard)

        In other words, using the “@” and one of the above selections provides a clickable link to that information within the LifeOmic Platform. It does not display the user's personal health information in the email.

      • Alert Email Content – Type the text of the alert email. When you click in this box, you'll get the “Type ‘@’ to prompt embedding alert contextual values." This allows you to choose from the options provided.
