Set device delivery priority

Operators can set the priority of alert delivery by device type. When enabled, the device delivery preference feature prevents end uses from receiving the same alert on multiple devices. When configured, end users receive alerts on their enabled devices in the order specified at the organization level or at the alert level selected by the operator. End users can also set a device priority for the devices they have enabled and provided an address for in their user profile. By default, the device delivery preference is in this order:
  • Mobile App
  • Email
  • Text Message
  • Pager
  • Fax
  • Phone TTT/TDD Phone
  • User Callback
  • Lync
Additional enabled devices are added to the bottom of the list.
