One of the key features of a search is the ability to turn on an audible alarm notification, where DAT Power audibly alerts you when a match is received. This can be useful if you cannot find the truck or load you need and you have other tasks to complete away from your desk.
Setting an alarm notification is just one click away. After performing a search, click the grey bell. When clicked, the bell will turn orange, indicating that the alarm is now active.
- indicates that the alarm sound is off
- indicates that the alarm sound is on
- indicates the last search that triggered an alarm (most recent)
When a new truck or load is posted that matches your criteria, you will hear an audible alert and visually see the number of matches that have been returned since the last time you viewed the search.
To disable the audible sound, click on the orange bell.
Note: All searches ran in DAT Power are active by default and will continue to find matches after the search is run; toggling the bell on and off only enables/disables the alarm sound. The search will continue to find new matches even when the audible sound is disabled.
