Can Alert Central generate it's own alerts and notifications instead of processing and forwarding alerts sourced from other devices?
We need a solution that can alert us when backups are due, and then have someone acknowledge that they completed the task. It would escalate up to managers after a certain amount of time. We don't have an external system setup that can forward such alerts to Alert Central, so I wanted to know if Alert Central can generate it's own alerts that trigger on a certain schedule (weekly, monthly, etc).
We don't have Alert Central implemented, and I want to make sure it would work as a solution before doing so.
No, Alert Central itself doesn't generate any alerts. The mission of AC is managing alerts generated by other systems.
