Mobile alerting with tracking & escalation for ConnectWise
ConnectWise Automate is a monitoring and ticketing system to help you identify critical issues in your IT infrastructure. Monitoring can be done on-premise or remotely. When issues arise, ConnectWise will email the respective parties that an issue needs to be addressed. The ticketing system helps keep critical issues separate from those less than urgent occurrences. But what if you are not watching your emails or sitting at the service desk with the dashboard in front of you? This is where SIGNL4 comes in. Integrating ConnectWise monitoring tools with SIGNL4’s reliable and instant notifications will ensure that the technicians know immediately that there is a new issue. All delivered directly to their smartphone, wherever they are.
How it Works
SIGNL4 can retrieve detailed ticket information sent from ConnectWise via SIGNL4 email forwarding. On-call users responsible for such tickets will receive mobile alerts and can take ownership and even collaborate with peers if needed.

HOW TO INTEGRATE SIGNL4 offers a native two-way integration using a Connector App. You can find a details description of this integration here.
An easy way for assigning a ticket to a SIGNL4 Team is email. You just need to create a user with the SIGNL4 team email address. Each ticket that is assigned to that user will be notified directly on their mobile device that a new ticket has been assigned.
For a more general approach you can set all new tickets that are opened to automatically be emailed to the SIGNL4 Team email. This approach ensures that all newly created alerts and tickets will be delivered to members on-duty.
ALERT OPTIMIZATION SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
