Alerts for AYCE Per Device Agreements:
Only one type of alert is needed for AYCE Agreements: an alert for the renewal date. When an alert is triggered it will create a sales ticket in Naverisk.
The example below shows alert that will be generated 7 days before the Agreement’s renewal date.
You can also alert on the % of the time that has passed within the Agreement.
Assigning Agreement to Devices
In order for them to be covered by the Agreement, all relevant devices must have the Agreement assigned to them, either by Device Type or specifically by Device Details.
By Device Type, set the Agreement under Settings > Device Types > Agreement Type. This will apply the Agreement to all devices of that Device Type.
By Device Details, go to the Device tab, select the specific device, and select the Attributes tab. From the Agreement drop-down menu, select the Agreement from the list and press Save.
Once the number of devices specified in the Agreement have been assigned, it is not possible to assign any further devices. You will need to either increase the number of devices in the Agreement, or un-assign another device first.
