Trigger example: Set up sign out notifications

Set up a trigger to send notifications when someone signs out of a location. You need the Triggers Manager user role to access these settings.

How it works

Using a sign out trigger, people can receive a notification when their guest signs out of the location. Choose if you’d like an email or SMS notification.

Set up triggers for visitors, contractors, and employees signing out. Trigger rules can be used to narrow the trigger event to a specific scenario. Rather than every time the event occurs, a trigger will only activate when the particular rule is met.

Your account must have the triggers add-on enabled to set up a trigger.
