User Actions

​You can add information when handling a trigger alarm. For example, you can add a comment to the alarm or open an action note that is connected to the alarm. When configuring an alarm, you can force the user to perform different actions when handling a triggered alarm.

You can add several comments and connect cause notes, action notes, and checklist items to a single alarm.

Note Note

When an Enterprise Server is connected to a SmartStruxure server device, all existing checklists, action notes, cause notes, and categories on SmartStruxure server device are removed and replaced with the objects from the Enterprise Server.

Comments

​Use comments to save written information about an alarm. Comments can be added and viewed at any time. A comment is automatically tagged with the user name and a time and date stamp. Useful comments could be the cause of the alarm and how it was taken care of. Information like this can be of great help the next time the same alarm is triggered.

For more information, see Comments .

Cause Notes

A cause note specifies the problem that caused the alarm. Cause notes are grouped by category, with possible alarm causes listed in each group. When an alarm is triggered, you can easily report the causes that triggered the alarm by selecting the predefined choices.

For more information, see Cause Notes .

Action Notes

​Action notes are grouped by category, with possible actions that may correct the problem listed in each category. An action note specifies the actions that you used to correct the problem that caused the alarm.

For more information, see Action Notes .

Checklists

A checklist is a set of steps that guides the user to which action to take when an alarm is triggered. If an alarm goes to normal state, the corresponding checklist is also reset and each step has to be checked again.

For more information, see Checklists .
