Mobile Device Alert

Mobile Device Alerts come to dedicated TeamDesk mobile app and allow interaction. That’s why this is a handy tool allowing to communicate with database users without e-mail notifications.

Like notifications, there is a message in the core. In addition, the system supports attaching custom buttons, that can be added to the action in order to let a user react to the message.
