How To Create and Link a Custom Smart Alert

Custom smart alerts are a way to receive custom notifications when an employee proceeds through a specific workflow. They allow employees, managers, and HR and Payroll teams to stay informed by sending automated messages outside of the Flare system.

Custom smart alerts are triggered by a ‘step’ in a process template.  For example, if you would like to know when somebody has signed an updated policy you can create a process step and then create a custom smart alert to notify you of the finalised document.
