The purpose of the Notifications Panel is two-fold. The first is to allow you to schedule periodic data export reports, like the ones generated in the Reports Panel.
The second is to allow you to create 'Immediate Alerts', via email, for a given set of event types, based on receiving an excess of a particular event type over a window of either fifteen minutes or one hour.
Note that if response times faster than fifteen minutes, or notifications via SMS are required, then our Grid application must be used. This is because broadly speaking, the focus of the IVMS app is on the longer term driving patterns of your drivers, while our Grid application is about real time visibility and alerting for security.
