How to Access: Advanced Options > Rules
Purpose: Within AccuCampus, you are able to create rules that tell the system to complete tasks automatically based on user actions within the system. In this module, we’ll discuss Notification rules, which allow you to automatically send a notification in response to a user action. This could include missed appointments, missed classes, or even encouragement when a user accesses a specific resource.
- Create New - Use this option to create a new Rule.
- Http Request - Use this option to access the HTTP Request page.
Courses List Options
- Delete - Use this option to delete this Rule. A confirmation message will prompt you to confirm the deletion so that these are less likely to be deleted by accident.
- Name - This is a unique identifier for this Rule.
- Description - This is a description for the Rule.
- Active - This option allows to enable/disable this Rule.
When does it occur?
- Trigger -Triggers are the first step to tell the system when to apply the rule. Triggers are typically based on a user’s actions within the system. The following triggers have been built into the system.
Please select from the list what action will trigger the Rule, see more details below.
- Conditions-Conditions are the second step to tell the system when to apply the rule. Conditions provide more context for the trigger. An example would be a trigger of “when a card is swiped” and the condition specifying the location where the card is swiped. The conditions available depend on the trigger; however, they generally involve locations, users, services, etc. You are able to add more than one condition to a trigger.
What does it do?
- Add Actions - Use this option to create a new Action(see next chapter for details)
- SAVE BUTTON - Click this option to save the configuration.
- CANCEL BUTTON - Click this option to cancel and roll back without saving.
. Select from the list of triggers the one you need. depending on the trigger you will be able to select Actions in the next step.
Conditions Depending on the trigger selected above a number of conditions can be used, these conditions work to compare/filter the results of data that is available during the user actions, for example, if the trigger is “When a media is checked out” we have access to what user is doing the action when it happened, where .. and much more information:
As you can see if we click on Add condition there is a lot of information that we have access to:
Create a new Action
Please select from the list of Actions, notice that you will have access to tokens which are pieces of information that can be added to any Action you select.
- Send an HTTP request - Send a custom HTTP request. This is useful to integrate with other systems. You will need to enter the URL and Select the Method between (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE).
- Send a Notification - Send a notification to the participants. When creating your notifications, it’s possible to use tokens. This allows you to create a generic notification that will be personalized based on the tokens contained within it. Much like with Internal IDs in the conditions, this allows the rule to remain active even if the name of a user, location, service, or course/event changes. Depending on the action you choose, a list of tokens will appear on the right-hand side of the screen. These include user ID tokens, location tokens, service tokens, etc. Click on the desired token to add it to your message, or to identify followers for the action.
