To trigger a weather delay alert, a weather delay must be added to the Weather Log in the Project level Daily Log tool.
When a user triggers a weather delay alert in Daily Log tool, the system sends alert messages as follows:
For weather delay alerts by phone, the system dials the user's telephone number. Then, the following occurs:
If the user answers the call, a robotic voice alerts the user of the weather delay and identifies the project by name.
If the user does not answer, the system alerts the user of the weather delay by leaving a voice mail message.
For weather delay alerts by email, the system sends an email message to the address on the user's record. Note that the system does NOT send alerts to users when a weather delay is removed or canceled from the Daily Log tool.
Navigate to the project's Directory tool.
Click the Users tab.
Locate the desired user in the list. Then click Edit.
