Animal alert history

  • Updated

Track all of the alerts that have every been triggered for an animal in the Alert history tab in each animal profile.

A red circle displays all active alerts that have not yet been resolved.



Unresolved alerts are displayed in a separate section from resolved historical alerts with the following information

  • User who triggered the alert

  • Date and time

  • Type of alert (Red triangle = Critical, Yellow circle = Warning)

  • Condition of the alert

  • Date and time it was resolved

  • User who resolved the alert.

Any user with write access to the study can Resolve and Undo resolution of an alert anywhere where is it displayed.


What does it mean to resolve an alert?

Once users no longer need to be informed of an alert, it can be Resolved, removing any notification of this alert from view, displaying it in the Alerts history of the animal only.


Examples of when to resolve an alert:

  • Study milestone has been met (E.g. tumor size is sufficient for enrollment into the study, animal has been assigned to study group, alert is resolved)

  • Welfare issue has been resolved (E.g warning notification of body weight change, animal diet changed, animal body weight increases, alert is resolved)

    Note: in this example you may want to set up a recurring alert so that the user is alerted if the same issue occurs again later in the study.

  • Study endpoint is reached (E.g, animal has exceeded study endpoint threshold or welfare threshold and must be Euthanized, alert is Resolved)


Note: Once an alert is resolved it will not be displayed for ANY user anywhere in the study and will not be included in the alert filter in the animal table or workflow.
