New Message Notification

The message list does not refresh automatically or indicate when there are new messages. Use the Notifier window to receive new message notification.

The Notifier window opens automatically each time you log in to the Services Portal.

Message notifications use your alert/notification preferences based on the message status:
Normal return message
Low-priority settings
Messages the driver marked "Priority"
Medium-priority settings
Panic messages (if you use them)
High-priority settings

  1. Enable message notification in your QTRACS user preferences.
  2. Set your low-, medium-, high-priority alert/notification preferences to receive in the Notifier window.
