Alert manager (errors and warnings)

Various entities within Podaris can generate errors and warnings. The alert manager provides an at a glance overview of all the current alerts within a project.

The alert manager presents a table of all current errors and warnings impacting a project, with a description of the alert and a count of the number of entities reporting that issue. There are two types of alerts within Podaris, warnings (yellow triangle) and errors (red exclamation points).

To help you understand more about an individual alert, clicking the icon will take you to the relevant support page.

Clicking the icon will add all affected entities to the current selection - making it easier to identify and fix specific issues.

Opening the alert manager

The alert manager can be opened from the button within the project menu at any time when you are within plan. This will open the manager as a floating panel which can be reposition and closed as needed.
