On-call schedules are used to map out your operations coverage needs and determine who will be notified when an ActOn is triggered. Only one user per schedule can be on-call at a time, and when is impacting a function, notifications are sent to that user on the function's associated escalation policy.
Notifications are sent to the responders who are scheduled for on-call now. These notifications are sent via Email, SMS, Voice, and Push to In-App based on how responders are have configured their notification rules.
Schedules allow you to add a team or an individual to monitor the signals in real-time via escalation policy. Schedules use one or more Escalation policies to notify actons to the on-call responders.
Configuring Schedules helps you notify the on-call team or individual when any harmful anomaly is detected in your organization’s infrastructure.
