Triggering Panic Alarm in Sign In/Out Manager

In this article we explain how to activate Panic Alarm from the Sign In/Out Manager screen. This is only used by those with the Sign In/Out Manager user role assigned.

Once Panic Alarm has been enabled for your Sign In/Out Managers at their location they can trigger a Panic Alarm Event at any time from the Sign In/Out Manager screen. All Panic Alarm notification recipients will immediately be notified that they require assistance.

Please Note: This option will only be available once Panic Alarm has been enabled for Sign In/Out Managers at their respective location by an Administrator.

1. Go to Tools > Sign In/Out Manager

2. Select the View more Actions button located top right corner
