    • You will then see a screen that allows you to check a box labeled "Send Alert." Click the checkbox then Save.
    • The staff member will then be able to:

      • Note: If a staff member has the right to send alerts to a given group when they log in they will be able to view all users within that group.
      • However, they will not be able to make changes to the group or to users within that group.
