Notifications control many of the badge sounds you hear, and enable or disable certain automatic operations.
Use the follwoing steps to change Notifications:
Check On/Off Network Alert when you want to hear a warning tone when the badge moves out of the range of your wireless network. (You can also monitor the network signal strength by looking at the badge display.)
If you normally move between buildings, and the network does not cover the outdoor spaces, you might not want to hear an audible alert.
Check Low Battery Alert if you want the badge to tell you when the battery needs to be recharged. The warning will be repeated at intervals until you change the battery. (You can also monitor the battery level by looking at the badge display. In addition, the LED at the top of the badge will blink fast red when the battery is low.)
Check Text Message Alert to hear a tone when you receive a new text or email message. The tone sounds only once for each new message.
Check Voice Message Alert DND Mode to hear an alert tone when you receive a new voice message. The tone sounds only once for each new message. If you also enable Missed Call Notification (see below), you will not hear a tone whenever a verbal notification is given.
Check DND Reminder to hear a tone every 15 minutes when your badge is in Do Not Disturb mode.
When you place your badge in a battery charger, Auto Logout When Badge in Charger sends a message to the Vocera server to log you out and then turns off the badge’s power. This is useful in situations where badges are shared; when the battery gets low, you can place the badge in an eight-bay charger, take a fully charged badge out of the charger, and immediately log in to the charged badge.
If you do not log in using voice commands (that is, you have a dedicated badge and are logged in all the time), the power on the badge will turn off when you place the badge in the charger, but you will not be logged off.
If Auto Logout When Badge in Charger is disabled, the badge power remains on and you stay logged in to the server while the battery is charging. This is convenient when you want to use the badge while it is sitting in a single-bay charger.
