What is a notification?

Notifications are triggered when an event takes place.

There are several events that generate a notification. A notification is sent when:

  • a sensor value passes a certain threshold
  • a KPI value passes a certain threshold
  • a Task is created. In this case also the "Task watchers" are receiving a notification
  • manually a comment is made on a message in the sensor or KPI timeline.

View notifications

Notifications can be found on several places in innius and they are represented by the Notification_2.png icon.

On the machine overview page all notifications received can be found in the notification centre (1). On the machine tile you can found the umber of notifications received for that machine (2).




When you click on the notification icon (1), all notifications a shown and you can click on a notification to go to the event that creates the notification.




Notifications can also be found on the machine timeline, and the comments ans events timeline by Sensors and KPI's. In that case the message on the timeline is marked with the Notification_2.pngicon (3).




Notifications when creating a comment 

It is possible to sent a notification when a comment is made on the Comment and Events time by Sensors and KPI's.



Click on the create comment button (4). When you have typed in the comment, by default a notification is sent. If you do want to create the comment but do not want to send a notification, click on the notification icon (5). The icon will change into Notifictions_7.pngicon and no notifcation will be send.


Mute notifications


Muting means that you no longer will receive notifications.  

You can choose for how long you want to mute notifications:

  • 1 hour
  • 8 hours
  • Always

You can also choose to still receive emergency notifications during the muted period.  

Muting and unmuting notifications can be done at different levels:

  • For a machine as a whole. In this case you mute all of its sensors and all notifications for messages created by persons for this machine. 




You can mute a machine as a whole on the machine overview page, by clicking on the dot_icon.pngicon (6) in the machine tile. Click on the the Mute icon (7). A new window will appear from wich you can select the duration of the mute periode.



  • For an individual sensor

You can mute notifcation from an individual sensor in the Comment and events timeline of this sensor.




Click on the notification icon (8) and select the mute option (9) from the menu. A new window will appear from which you can select the duration of the mute period.


  • For an individual KPI

You can mute notifications from an individual KPI in the Comment and events timeline of this KPI. Follow the same steps as mention by "For an individual sensor".
