Subscribe to Decisive Red Alerts via Notification Framework and EWA Workspace

In order to improve usability of the Workspace the development team enabled the Notification framework in SAP for Me to send out notification for critical alerts while they are processed instead of looking it up each week in the SAP EarlyWatch Alert Workspace.

Click "OK"

With that we can enable Notification for the saved view.

In the upper right corner, you can find the notification bell icon.

You make these settings in Settings > SAP ONE Support Launchpad.

A new screen appears. You need to select "SAP EarlyWatch Alert Workspace" to configure notification for Views and Cards.

You can now enable notifications for new decisive red alert in the SAP EarlyWatch Alert reports and other alerts from predictive scenarios related to the filter Settings save in the view.

You are done. You will be informed automatically by the channel you have chosen whenever a new critical alert is processed (relevant for the selected filter view).
