There are four different ways to distribute a notification to a recipient:
Write to File
The client notification distribution method displays the notification as a system tray popup in WorkStation when the configured alarm or variable condition is met.
Notifications distributed by email are sent through the SMTP protocol when the configured alarm or variable condition is met. If the recipient is a user account and the notification is triggered by an alarm, the notification is only displayed if the logged on user is authorized to view the alarm. You can either use a predefined SMTP server provided by Schneider Electric or use your own SMTP server.

SNMP alarms are typically used when the alarm receiver does not have access to Building Operation software or when a central unit, for example the IT department, wants to collect alarms from different sources in one place.

The write to file notification is written to a text file when the configured notification condition is met.
