Import/Export of contacts

The "Import" function, available under "Administrator", allows you to add contacts from an Excel file (. xls or .xlsx.). This feature also allows you to quickly update multiple contacts.

Relevant articles "How to import contacts?" "How to update multiple contacts ?" "How to export contacts from the Directory ?"

Import contacts

  1. Go to the "Administrator" tab
  2. Click on " Import/Export "
  3. Click on « New import »
  4. If necessary, download the .xls or .xlsx, in order to respect the format requested by AlarmTILT®
  5. Select your .xls or .xlsx to import

The download will then be set to the "Scan awaiting processing"  status, which means that the system is preloading  your data before scanning it: Once the file is preloaded, you will receive an email informing you that the import is awaiting validation.

At this point, the contacts in your Excel file are still not imported into your directory. The system will ask you to first check for possible errors in the file.

If the result suits you, you can click on "import".

Your contacts will then be imported into the directory within the next few minutes. You will receive a confirmation email again.

When importing your contact database, avoid importing  more than 250 contacts simultaneously. If your base consists of more than 250 contacts, carry out your import in batches of 250 lines (or contacts) maximum.

Update multiple contacts simultaneously

  1. Export the directory
  2. Edit the .xls obtained during export
  3. Import the .xls

Export the contacts of the directory  

Since the page « Import/export », Click on « Export ».

When encoding attributes in the Excel file, it is necessary that it is perfectly identical to the value encoded in AlarmTILT®. To assign two attribute values to a contact, you must place the attributes below each other in the same cell.
Example: to add to a contact the attribute "Function" = "Director" AND "Member crisis  unit", in the Excel file it will be necessary to enter the attributes in  the "Function"

Create and manage a contact group

A contact group is a group in which multiple contacts have been added manually.

Unlike dynamic selection based on attributes, a contact group only varies if it is modified. "What is a group and how to create it ?"


  1. Click on "Add Group"
  2. Name your group and click on " Add Recipients "

Add recipients to a group

Add only certain contacts:

  2. Establish the conditions for dynamic selection (for example, contacts with the " Function = Administrator ")
  3. To add multiple conditions, click the
  4. Click on the "here" link to preview the contacts affected by the condition(s)
  5.  Save

Maintain the data of your contacts up to date

Having your contacts' data up to date is essential to ensure an effective crisis communication. That's why we encourage you to set up the necessary process with AlarmTILT® to allow you to verify and validate the contact details of all recipients in your directory in just a few clicks.


To send a data verification request to your contacts or to a part of your directory, you need to create a specific procedure.

  1. Log in as a procedure manager and create a new process that you will name "Update contact", for example.
  2. Click on "launch form" and add the variable "System data". Select "Contacts.S001" from the drop-down list. This will allow you to select the recipients to contact, at the time of starting the process.
  3. Set up the email to send to your contacts. New variables have been created for this type of process. The variable to be specified in the body of the email is the variable {ContactUpdate.single}; it is this that will allow the generation of the update link.
  4. Configure the response time. It must be equal to a maximum of 48 hours (lifetime of the generated link - after this timeline, access will be denied).
  5. Click on " Validate "
  6. Configure the objective of the step. It should be set to "Contact refresh  — 100%"
  7. Save your new process.
The {ContactUpdate.single} variable is intended to be transmitted by e-mail, so it will not be usable on an SMS or voice call.

Create a contact attribute

An attribute is an additional indication that can be added to the card of some contacts. This information can be for example the function that the contact performs, his age, his date of birth, his place of residence.

This information is useful when creating dynamic selection to alert for example only contacts performing function A and living in place X.

Relevant articles "How to create a contact attribute ?" "What is an attribute ?" "How to edit a contact attribute ?"


  1. Click on the "Attributes" action button
  2. Click on " Add "
  3. Enter a name, such as " Date of birth "
  4. Choose a type, for example, "Date" (choose the desired format)
  5. If necessary, add a "Context-sensitive Help".  An icon will appear next to the field and display your explanation
  6. Save.
As long as you have an Enterprise license with multiple administrative units,  you can  share attributes. Thus, attributes are managed from the main administrative unit  and can be used by the administrative sub-units. To share attributes,  please contact  AlarmTILT Support®.

Attach an attribute to a contact

  1. Click on " Directory "
  2. Find and select a contact
  3. Click on Attribute
  4. Choose the Date of Birth attribute, choose a value, and click the floppy disk record
  5. Multiple values can be entered for the same attribute
  6. Click "Backup"
What is a global alert scheme?

Through the Alert Schema page, you can create global alert schemas. These schemas replace personal alert patterns when used in a message or procedure. By using this alert scheme in your procedures, all of your recipients will be contacted in the same way.


  1. Click on the "Alert schemes" button,
  2. Click on " Add ",
  3. Name your alert scheme, for example "Night Reminder",
  4. Click on " Add Media ",
  5. Choose the type, for example " Email "
  6. Select a second media, for example " SMS "
  7. Configure the duration (the time that will elapse before launching the alert on the next media, for example 2 minutes)
  8. Click "Save"
With a global alert scheme, you can for example alert people only by SMS or first on their email and then by SMS: you choose the order of the media that will be used during the alert.

What is a personal alert scheme?

A personal alert scheme defines the order in which a contact will receive an alert. By using the personal alert scheme, each contact will be alerted differently.

Example : SMS, then email, then voice

Each contact has a personal  alert scheme.

The personal alert scheme is configured on the  contact's own card:

  • The "Duration" option indicates the waiting time before switching to the media in which the duration is indicated.
  • The "Disable" option allows you to temporarily exclude media from the schema without deleting it.
  •  The "Confidential" option hides data  from a media outlet. Only the owner of the data will be able to see the content.

You will then be able to select this alert scheme when creating your procedures. The alert scheme is located just below the recipients when writing a message about a step in a procedure.

With a global alert scheme, you can for example alert people only by SMS or first on their email and then by SMS: you choose the order of the media that will be used during the alert.
We recommend using the global alert scheme unless the personal alert scheme is absolutely necessary.

Create a calendar

Calendars can be added to the AlarmTILT® calendar. Creating a calendar generates a dynamic selection that, when used as a recipient within a procedure, only the people who are present in that calendar will be alert when the procedure gets triggered. "How to create a Calendar ?"

Share the directory between administrative units

Since you created and configured several administrative units within AlarmTILT®, the directories are distinct and specific to each.

In order to avoid having to manage multiple directories, with all the constraints that this can generate, you can share the directory of one administrative unit with the others. "How to share directory between Management units ?"

  8. Select the first administrative unit
  9. Save
Once access to the directory is authorized, an administrative unit will be able to use the contacts of another administrative unit in the launch of alerts within its own procedures.

The inter-service link is used so that any user from one administrative unit can connect to an another administrative unit without necessarily having to have two separate logins/passwords. This allows to switch from one account to another with ease.

Method :

  1. From the second administrative unit, click on "Organization", then on "Add interservice link",
  2. Select from the list the first administrative unit,
  3. Select from the second list the contact of the first administrative  unit,

  • Minimum selection: All field units will be included, as well as the names of the contacts associated with it
  • Customize: It is possible to create the organization book according to the needs of the user.

Management of Procedures & Alerts.

Automate your crisis management.

Create a procedure

Creating processes will allow you to automate your crisis management plan accurately. When creating it, you will have to perform the basic configuration before you can manage the complete flow of your process. This one should be available in the graphic design workshop under the "Process" tab.

Relevant articles "How to trigger a procedure ?" "▶️ How to create your first Procedure"


  1. Log in as a "Procedure Manager  "
  2. Click on " Add a procedure "
  3. Enter a name for your procedure
  4. Specify the "Deployment  Status"

(If you select "Under development", your procedure will not be visible to the procedure  launcher  , allowing you to work on your procedure without it being executable.)

  1. Click on "Process " to set up your procedure.
  2. Think To save regularly your work !
Before embarking on the creation of a procedure, it is necessary to determine what should be integrated into AlarmTILT®. This requires reflection:
  • Am I in possession of clear plans or organizational charts?
  • Which  recipients should be alerted and under what conditions?
  • If a recipient does not respond, what is the follow-up?
Once we have defined what to set up in AlarmTILT®, the procedure can be created.

Configure/create a launching form

The launch form is easily configured thanks to the large selection of fields offered by AlarmTILT®. This is the form that the procedure launcher will have to complete before starting a process. It is therefore important that it is clear, understandable, and concise. "Selection and launch of the procedure


  1. Click on " Launch form  " (  left menu),
  2. Use drag-and-drop to add the fields you want  to your launch  form  .
  3. When adding a field, fill in the information: Label (title of the field), name (name of the variable), mandatory (if you want the field to be mandatory to validate the form), Contextual Help (description of the field, visible in the  flyover).
  4. The configuration of your field Completed the you Enough of pass at next.
   When creating or modifying a procedure, to save the work in progress you must click on "Save & continue".

Launch forms can be composed of several pages with conditions in function some news Provided.

Its goal will be  to be able to use the variables for the creation of conditions,  messages, etc.

Types of fields available for your launch forms

  • Text
  • Text box,
  • Date,
  • Date and time,
  • Hour

  • Check box  group,
  • Display text,
  • System data.

Set up a field in the launching form

In the "Add Field  " area are all the variables that can be used. Drag them to the right page named "Page 1". Once the variable is added to your form, you can complete it (fields  with an * are mandatory).


  1. The "Label" field will help the procedure launcher choose the correct value of the variable.

For  example, we can write down a question: "Is this a test?".

  1. The "Name" field is the name you give to the variable that will be visible in the messages only when managing the procedure: when sending the message, this field will be replaced by the value that the launcher of procedure will have chosen in the form
  2. By checking the "Required" box, the procedure launcher will not be able to trigger the procedure if he does not answer this question. So it's an existential question.
  3. Yes she east Completed one « Help Contextual » can appear when the pitcher of procedure will complete the form.


  • A variable must be named without accents or spaces
  • Click the button to edit the form variable.
  • For a list, the values must be written one below the other.
  • It is possible to change the order in which the variables will appear by dragging them into the launch form.

Define conditions in your procedures

AlarmTILT® allows you to establish conditions in your procedures, which will define the next steps according to a precise criteria.

Example: Depending on the location of the incident, you want to alert one group over another.

  2. In " First steps ", click on the " + " to add a step, a link is displayed to define the conditions of the step.
  3. Click the link to open the condition window. With the help of the selection boxes, define a condition according to your needs.

based on the example showed above, the procedure will adapt in function of the place of the incident  (Luxembourg or Paris), and contact only the person who are needed.

Set conditions for recipients

With AlarmTILT® you have the possibility to add conditions directly to certain recipients. The message, the objective, and the alert pattern will not change. Only recipients will be adapted  according to the values filled in the launch form.


  1. Define a variable on the  launch form: You must have created a variable directly in the  launching form  of your procedure (see "Create a launch form").

Example: Department impacted: If Department 1 is impacted, some people will need to be alerted;  on the other  hand, if it is department 2, other people will be alerted.

  1. Add a condition to the message: When you define the recipients of the message, check the "Advanced options"box.  A link then appears to add the conditions.
  2. To add more recipients/conditions, click the "+" button

Create/configure a step

Use system variables

System variables allow you to customize the content of a message with data which may vary.

For example:  launch date, recipient name , trigger email, etc.

System variables are distinct from user variables. These are the same variables for all procedures; they are available as soon as the procedure is created while user variables are created by the procedure manager from the launch form.

It is possible to use them:

  • In the body of a message
  • As the recipient of a message

In the body of a message

  1. In a message, choose to display the variables of type "System" and select the appropriate variables directly from the drop-down list provided for this purpose.
  2. Copy the value into the body of your message, where you want the system variable to appear.

 Find the list of system variables available in the appendix.

As recipient of a message

With AlarmTILT®, you have variables that will define recipients according to the objectives established in your procedures.

Useful for reminding people who would not have responded to the previous step, for example.


system will wait for replies to messages. You will see in real time the given answers.


  1. From the configuration page of your step, in the "Answers" area, click on "Yes" to configure a goal (a response request).
  2. Define the type of expected responses:
  • Answers: to set a goal based solely on having an answer, regardless of the content of the answer.
  • Yes/no answers: to define a yes or no answer only.
  • Answer yes: to define a target related to an expected number of "yes" answers.
  • Answer no: to define a target related to an expected number of "no" answers.
  • Confirmation of receipt: to define a target based on the reading of the alert message (by SMS, the recipient will have to acknowledge receipt by replying with " yes ", " OK ", or " yes ", "ya" etc.)
  • Conference call: to be selected as part of a conference call
  • Updating contacts: to be selected as part of the contact update procedure
  1. Set the goal in numbers and the unit defined (a number or a rate)
  2. Click on “To save & close” for record your configuration

Define the sequence according to the objective

When you select the option "Next step different if the goal is not achieved", a new step "If goal not achieved" appears, you just have to click on it to configure it.

In an event where the objective is achieved the next step will be started, or in the absence of a next step, it leads to the end of the procedure.


The counter-objective is an option that allows you to define the behavior of the system in case of an unattainable goal.

Example: Out of 10 contacts alerted, the goal is to have 8 "Yes" answers.  If during the stage 3 people answer "No", then either:

  • The step continues until the deadline expires and future responses continue to be considered.
  •  The stage ends because the objective is no longer achievable (10 contacts, 3 "No" answers or a capacity of 7 "Yes" answers maximum instead of 8 required).

This feature must be enabled manually:

  • If enabled (default): The system does not wait for the timeout to complete,
  • If disabled: The system waits for the timeout  to complete.


  1. Go to the "Progress" section of your process
  2. Check the "Counter-objective evaluation" box to activate the counter-objective
  3. Click on « To save & Close »

Simulate a procedure

In order to prepare for a crisis situation, it is advisable to regularly test the smooth running of the procedures you have in production. "How to trigger a procedure ?"

The "Start simulation" function allows to visualize what will happen in the event of a real trigger:

  • Who will be contacted?
  • What will be the message?
  • How long does it take for the system to move to the next step?
  • What happens when the recipient answers "YES" or "NO"?

In order to put you in a situation, the views are exactly the same as those that the procedure launcher will have. You have the same features as during a real trigger:

  • Simulate procedure (Start procedure)
  • Monitoring simulations (Procedure monitoring )
  • Message History (History) 

Finally, just like during a real trigger, it is possible to change the responses of the recipients manually to test all eventualities. (For example: if the next step in case of an unmet goal activates correctly)


  1. Click on " Start Simulation "
  2. If necessary, complete the launch form
  3. You go to the page with the results of your simulation
  4. Click on " Close the procedure " if the test is conclusive or " Review the procedure " if you want to restart the procedure by changing either parameter.
  5. Restart the process of simulation with others securities To of Ok ensure of the good operation and of the good event of your procedure.
You must back up your process in order to preserve any changes or configurations made before the simulation starts.  As part of a simulation, NO NOTIFICATION WILL BE SENT.

What is an external trigger

An external trigger allows you to trigger an alert by sending an email, an SMS, or a voice call to AlarmTILT®. Sending an e-mail is free of charge (included in the system). For SMS or voice triggering, the support team must order 1 number, and an additional fee is charged. For email triggering, you just need to send an email.

Regardless of the media used (e-mail, SMS, Voice call), AlarmTILT® interprets your message and triggers the sending of an alert or a procedure that will transmit the alert to recipients.

Example 1: If you use monitoring software such as Nagios®, What's Up, among others, you can via an email, launched from this software, run a procedure, or send a message to your AlarmTILT® account.

Example 2: You can start a procedure or send a message to your AlarmTILT® account from your email software, Outlook, Thunderbird, or other.

As these 2 examples demonstrate, any system or person through the sending  of an e-mail will be able to send alerts or trigger processes, without having to connect to the AlarmTILT® interface.  These submissions will be archived in AlarmTILT®.

The different external triggers

There are several types of email triggering with different formatting:

  • Sending messages to contacts in the AlarmTILT® directory:

Recipients must be from the directory, in the form FIRST NAME

  •  Simplified sending to pre-selected contacts in the AlarmTILT® directory:

"Quicklaunch". Recipients are predefined in AlarmTILT®.

  •  Sending a message to non-directory destinations (e.g.  SMS to +352621123456):

The recipients are not from the AlarmTILT® directory, but free. Sending is possible to SMS,  voice calls or e-mail.

  • Procedure initiation:

The content will respect a formatting, framed by [Begin] and [End] tags and will vary  according to the variables used in the procedure

Manual triggers

Depending on your needs, a procedure can be triggered in different ways.  In addition to standard triggers through the smartphone app or through the AlarmTILT® web interface.

  • A procedure can be triggered in various ways: SMS, Voice call, physical button, Webservice, or e-mail.

Trigger an SMS procedure

Triggering by SMS will allow you to trigger a procedure directly by sending an SMS to a special number. In this case, no parameters (launch form) can be supported.

To enable email triggering, please contact your AlarmTILT® support.

Trigger a voice call procedure

Voice call triggering allows you to trigger a procedure by calling a special number (and not surcharged). The voice menu allowing the trigger is set up According to your needs.

To enable voice call triggering via email, please contact your AlarmTILT® support.

Trigger a procedure by the physical button

Triggering by physical button is possible as long as you have subscribed to the buttons with AlarmTILT®. Connected wirelessly to AlarmTILT® with a dedicated and secure network, the configuration and parameterization of the buttons are done by our services.

The physical button can take the shape you want depending on your needs. Activating it triggers a procedure.

For more information, please contact your AlarmTILT® support.

Trigger a procedure by Webservice

In the same way as for the synchronization of contact directories, AlarmTILT® can be interfaced with your internal software.

For more information about Webservice, please contact your AlarmTILT® support.

Trigger an email procedure

Sending an e-mail to AlarmTILT® triggers the procedure or alert of your choice.

The CMC (Crisis Management Center).

The ultimate tool  for collaboration in all circumstances

Create a CMC

A CMC is a web page used as a communication platform for exchanging information to the crisis management team without being physically present in a conference room. CMC gives you the possibility to share documents (images, documents, text messages, audio recording or from a conference call).


  1. Log in as a "Procedure Manager"
  2. Click on " CMC " then on " Add CMC "
  3. Just like establishing a procedure, the manager will configure the CMC, give it a name, a description, and link it to a procedure and/or conference call at the launch of the CMC.
A procedure can (and ideally should) be triggered automatically at the time of launching the CMC. The goal is to inform several people that a CMC has been triggered and to invite them to connect to it (several variables have been created for this purpose, allowing to communicate the name, description, link URL of the CMC, the possible password...).

Form of creation of a New CMC

Trigger a CMC

As with procedures, you can choose between different CMCs. To trigger a CMC you must first know which one to launch depending on the situation of the crisis unit.


  1. Log in as a "  procedure launcher"
  2. Click the "Launch CMC" action button
  3. Rename the CMC if necessary
  4. If necessary, complete the launch form.
  5. Click on " Launch "

Frequently Asked Questions.

What is my version of AlarmTILT®?

The version of AlarmTILT® you are using appears at the bottom of the screen when you open a page for 20 seconds.

Where is AlarmTILT® hosted?

Premium Professional Enterprise

Our servers are physically hosted in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, in Windhof at the BRC as well as in Germany and France.

Can the media selection be predefined when sending a simple message?

No.  The two  most used media  are selected by default  namely Email and SMS.

Why is there the "a@" in  SMS messages?

"a@" is a code.  It is used to assign a response to a specific message: Within  the same procedure, a person may receive several SMS more or less at the same time. Having the short code "a@", "b@", etc.  at the  beginning of the message allows contacts  to reply  "a@ ok" to reply "OK" to the first message only.

If its response does not contain code, it will be automatically assigned to the last message sent.  This code is added only when a response is expected. By default, this option is not enabled.  To enable it, contact  AlarmTILT® Support.

Can I respond to a voice alert recorded on my voicemail?

A voice alert is synchronous processing, that is, the response is expected immediately (an SMS is asynchronous). If the call falls on the voicemail, it will no longer be possible to answer it.

On the other hand, the recipient can at any time reply on any another media which he had possibly been alerted on (SMS, E-mail, iPhone / Android push notifications ...)

Is the calling  number always the same?

Alert numbers are different depending on your phone's country code, as well as the media used.  Find the list of numbers used on the "AlarmTILT® number"  page.

What are "voice" calls made for?   Are there any additional costs  depending on the reception location  ?

For redundancy reasons (if one server fails another takes automatically covery), AlarmTILT® transmits calls from different countries.

Regardless of the origin of the call, there will be no additional  cost to receive it.

Can I start a procedure several times at  the same time?

All procedures have a default  limit of 5 active triggers simultaneously.  You can change this setting, to do so go to the "Manage the number of simultaneous triggers" page  .
