AWARDS generates Internal Audit messages related to data entry and reporting for a variety of functionality throughout the system.  Those messages are sent to your AWARDS Messages module when you have the permission to receive them; however, a Notifications feature also exists that allows you to configure whether or not you would like to receive a corresponding notification in an external email system.  Using the Notifications feature you can select which Internal Audit messages the emails should be sent for, and keep your email address information up to date.

When the Notification option is configured, external notification emails are sent to the user based on rules set under External Email Functionality and using preferences recorded for that user within the Notifications feature.  When a notification is received via email, the content of that notification displays the type of internal audit message, along with a link to the message in AWARDS.   Upon clicking that link the user must login, and will then be able to view the full message.

  NOTE: External email notifications NEVER contain protected health information (PHI); that data is limited to viewing from within AWARDS after the user logs in to view the full message.

Required Permissions

The Notifications feature is available to users with the following permissions:

  NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature.  If you do not have access to that feature and need the permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.
