Menu Selection:(select the check box to enable/disable alarm pop-ups)
For the current user session, this item determines if the pop-up Alarms Window (also referred to as Metasys - Events or Alarm Bar) automatically displays when an alarm is detected.
Clicking the alarm icon in the status bar re-enables alarm pop-ups and displays the current alarm, if any.
If you disable the alarm pop-up window and you have the audible alarm option enabled, the audible alarm sounds when an alarm is detected. See the Alarms Window section in the Site Management Portal User Interface.
