One shot events

Event Rules needs to turn to false first before they can trigger a new notification, that is a new SMS, email, blinking icon etc. But sometimes you want a new event for each signal.

Problem

Example: you have a device which sends SOS signals. Each time a new (SOS) signal comes from the device you want a new event to be triggered. But since there is no signals in between that turns the Event Rule false, no new events are triggered.

Solution

You need to turn an Event Rule into a One Shot Event. Follow these steps:

1. Edit/create an Event Rule by accessing to Admin > Event Rules menu in your application.

2. In Step 4. Expressions, add the exact same expression that triggers the event in Show advanced options

Example:

3. Save your event rule.
