An Event Priority is an action that arranges events in order of importance.

The dedicated Event Priorities tile opens the Event Priorities panel. The list of Event Priorities can be opened in view mode by all system users, regardless of their permissions set.


The Event Priorities panel

The Priorities panel lists all the Event priorities. By default, a set of priorities are available in the i4connected portal, but the user can customize them or add new ones, as described in this article.

The Priorities panel features a filtering mechanism, that allows the user the possibility to search by priority name. By clicking the Reset filter button Reset_filter.jpg all the contents in the search field are removed and the filter is no longer applied to the list.
