This feature is well-suited for companies of all sizes, whether they have a large number of employees working remotely or a smaller team. By using this rule, users can effectively manage and control the task completion process and stay informed about submitted forms. The system will promptly notify you about these events through SMS, email, push notifications on the "X-GPS Monitor" mobile application or in the web user interface.
To efficiently manage a team of field employees, create a rule for each employee (tracker) to monitor task completion, failures, arrivals, and delays. Generate comprehensive reports to analyze task event statistics over time, facilitating better decision-making.
In this section, the user specifies what events they would like to receive notifications of. For example, if the user needs to control delays and form submissions of the tasks only, they may select the respective options to be notified of. This can assist companies in mitigating failures when dealing with delivery, service workers, drivers, patrolling, and other related tasks.
Each status represented here is controlled by tasks that the employees can be bound to. In turn, statuses are depended on the periods of the tasks' settings. To learn more about tasks and their statuses, please refer to the Tasks article.

The platform specifics
- The "Task performance" alert has no reset timer, meaning the alert event will occur every time a Task performance event comes in. This is different in comparison to many other rules of the platform which have the reset timer.
- This rule is a generic type that is not specific to any particular hardware, which means it can be applied to multiple trackers simultaneously. This allows for the selection of several trackers within a single rule.

List of recipients for SMS notifications when the event occurs.
List of recipients for email notifications when the event occurs.
Set a schedule for when the rule will run. If your schedule indicates that the event should not run some day or time period, it will not appear as a notification in the user interface, and notifications via SMS or email will not be sent. Additionally, you can choose a default template for quick scheduling.
To view the dates when the events were received, you can build the "Task Report" report.
It is very useful for viewing over time when and what task status events occurred in the context of analysis and monitoring.
