When creating an alert, you have the ability to assign it to a specific user for follow up. Only alerts created in Beacon can be assigned during alert creation; alerts created with the Notation Widget or within the Faculty Experience cannot be assigned when the user is creating an alert though they can be assigned later within Beacon.

Assigning an Alert during Alert Creation

To assign an alert to a user, create a Notification and select "Alert". On the "Create Alert" pop-up screen, you will have an option to assign the alert. You can leave this blank, or type the name of the individual to which you would like to assign the alert. The field will begin to populate as you type. 

Alerts can be assigned to any individual in the student's success network or any Generalist, Executive, or Administrator.



Assigning an Alert Later or Re-assigning an Alert

Perhaps an alert was created through the Faculty Experience or the Notation Widget and should be assigned, or you were assigned an alert you think should be assigned elsewhere. You are able to assign the alert to any user through the life of the alert. 


Isolating Alerts Assigned to You

On the Home page, you can filter to only view notations that are assigned to you.
