Define Alerts dialog : Alert
When you define a new alert you specify its type and then its properties (see below).
There are several alerts of different types:
|Idle Time matches criterion||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its Idle Time becomes equal to predefined value. ("Idle Time" which you can see in the Users List on the "Users" page means time for which user didn't use the computer)|
|Network Assistant activation/deactivation||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its Network Assistant is being activated or deactivated.|
|Network Assistant startup/shutdown||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its Network Assistant joins the neighborhood or leaves it.|
|Chat typing||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its user types in the chat window.|
|Foreground window title matches criterion||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its foreground window title matches the specified criteria.|
|Mouse movement||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its user moves its mouse.|
|Screen shot taking||Such alert is risen by the remote computer when its user takes screen shot of your screen.|
You can define several alerts of the same type at one time for a particular user.
Each alert has its own set of properties. That depends on the type of alert. For example, "Idle Time matches criterion" alert has only one property: Predefined "Idle Time" value (sec).
How to raise this alert
This option specifies how to raise an alert:
|Once (volatile alert)||Such alert will be risen only once and then it will be automatically deactivated (but not removed). This will happen when alert condition becomes true.|
|Always (persistent alert)||Such alert will be risen every time when its condition becomes true and such alert will never be deactivated automatically. (However it is still possible to deactivate it manually)|
Volatile alerts are useful when you want to track a single events (for example, if you may want to be notified when a particular user returns back to its computer then you need to use a volatile "Idle Time matches criterion" alert with zero parameter). Persistent alerts are intended to be used for tracking of multiple events (for example, when you want to be notified when a particular user takes a screen shot of your screen; or when he types in the chat window).
This read only field provides you with a short description of the currently selected alert.
