Emergency Alert - No Transfer

Run Instructions

Function:

Write an extract file of all active students and employees to provide the information needed to contact them with the emergency alert system.  Students are included if they are enrolled in the current semester or any future semester.  Employees are included if they have an active appointment (job) on the current date or any time in the future.

The extract file includes UW Oshkosh EMPLID, name, campus email address and NetID for each person.  

Operation:

 From the menu, select:

Main Menu > UWO Campus Community > Emergency Alert Interface > Emergency Alert Extract 

Select a Run Control ID or create a new one.  -- See Using Run Control ID

Emergency Alert - No Transfer 

Run the process using the Process Scheduler.  -- See Using Process Scheduler

Ensure the Process Scheduler Request page has these values:

  • Server Name is PSUNX.
  • The box is checked in the Process List by Emergency Alert Extract, Z_CCA051A

  • Type is Web and Format is TXT.

Use the Process Monitor to view the output of the process.  -- See Using Process Monitor 

The process writes a file named zcca051a_rave_people.csv

Additional Information:

See the system instructions -- Emergency Alert Interface 

This process writes the file, but it does not actually transfer it to Rave, the emergency alert vendor.  This usually would only be done when testing.   Normally, the process that combines writing the file and transferring it would be used.  -- Emergency Alert Extract
