Speech-friendly monitor names for phone alerts

We’re changing our user interface. Some info may not yet be up to date. Please check From classic to new UI.

In some cases, the name of the monitor that caused an alert is not suitable for text-to-speech conversion. To make your phone alerts understandable, you can enable speech-friendly monitor names. To enable speech-friendly monitor names:

  1. Navigate to Alerts > Integrations on the Main menu.
  2. Click your phone integration to open the editor.
  3. Select the checkbox labeled Use alternate monitor names.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Navigate to Monitors > Monitors on the Main menu.
  6. Click to open a monitor that uses phone alerts.
  7. Type a text-to-speech friendly name alternative in the box labeled Name for phone alerts located on the Main tab.
  8. Click Save.

Configuring the ideal speech-friendly name

At this moment, we don’t have a test function available to demonstrate how the monitor name sounds in a phone alert message. Therefore, you may need to experiment before finding the best sounding option.

Tip: Changing the language of the phone alert can also help to achieve the best pronunciation. You can change the language for the phone alert in the Phone integration screen (Alerts > Integrations).
