I have searched the forum and IA webiste high and low to no avail. Why am I surprised that no one else has needed this functionality?
Has anyone attempted (and been successful) at using scripting or some other means to sequentially send out alert messages to a contacts list?
Here is the sequence I was hoping for:
- Alert becomes active.
- Send alert message to first contact on the call list (notification group).
- Wait 5 minutes. If first contact logs on and acknowledges alarm within 5 minutes, all is good.
- If first contact does not log on and acknowledge alert, send alert message to second contact on the call list, and so on…
Seems like it would be possible. Maybe with a gateway tag change script.
I am trying to avoid having to use Win911 with Ignition since it sounds a bit challenging.
