From VersaVision Support


Defined-Button-No.png

OVERVIEW

Communications is where everything connected to messaging in the system is setup.
There are multiple components inside Communications, this page is focused on the Defined Messages component.
A Defined Message allows the user to create a message to be sent out to Contacts in one location.
The Defined Message can then be used on multiple monitoring points and/or configurations.
The advantage to a Defined Message is that changes/edits can all be done in 1 area as opposed to having to edit multiple monitoring points and/or configurations.
This page will concentrate on Viewing, Editing, Adding, Duplicating, Deleting and Setting a Default.


NAVIGATION

Communications can be accessed via the Home page menu or the Communications icon. Once Communications has been selected - select Defined Messages from the menu.
