Multimedia

Multimedia category contains Actions that can play audible system alerts or audio files. Audible alerts are good means to attract user attention. However, they depend on configuration of sound settings and rely on the presence of user. For important notifications it is best to complement audible alerts with other types of notifications, such as email.

Advanced multimedia

Automated IT processes rarely require human presence, but, when they do, it might be important enough to use immediate means for attracting user attention including audible alerts and prerecorded messages.
