Overview

RooQueue Notify is designed to notify advisers of new entries in the RooQueue system. Advisers will no longer need to monitor on the website to be notified of student arrivals. Instead, when an entry is created or modified a notification will be sent to RooQueue Notify which will display the message on the user's desktop. When a new notification is received, it will appear in the bottom right part of your desktop and also play a sound. Notifications provide a link to the RooQueue website for easy access.

RooQueue Notify - Options - Receive Notifications via Keywords and Username


Keyword List:
First and foremost is the Keyword List which acts as a filter for incoming notifications. Words in the Keywords List will be checked against incoming notifications, and if there is a match you will receive a notification. If no keywords are in the list, notifications will be filtered by your Displayed Entries settings. See below for more information.

Notification Duration:
Sets the length of time, in seconds, that notifications will show for. A small timer in the top left corner lets you know how much time the notification has left. If you left click on the notification, the timer will stop and it will stay until you manually close it (X-button in the top right corner).

Queue Name:
For implementations that use different queues, you must choose which queue you are listening for. If your implementation does not use queues, All will be selected for you.

Displayed Information:
Select the fields you want to see in your notification.

Displayed Entries:
Select the type of entries you would like to receive notifications from.
Note: The combination of Entries for Me Only and Notification Entries is impossible. When one option is check, the other is disabled on purpose.

New Entries: Show notifications for new entries created through RooQueue or on the website.

Modified Entries: Show notifications for entries that have been modified from the website. Ex. Changing a status to Taken By Adviser.
