New algorithm in Notification type of Interposition of Units

Topic: New algorithm in Notification type of Interposition of Units

Hello,

I have an issue about creating Notification type of Interposition of Units. I have 100 units on my account. If I want to have Notification on approaching these units, I have to create 100 Notifications based on current algorithm. Would you please change the algorithm in a way that check all selected units and notify user in case of approaching two of them? this way we can solve the issue with only one notification.

Hello faezejam,

If I interpret your request correctly, then you want that when units approach/move away from each other, a notification will be triggered immediately for 2 units(for the one that is controlled and for the one that is approaching).

It's possible that I misunderstood something and the idea was different. If so, please discribe your proposal in detail.

Re: New algorithm in Notification type of Interposition of Units

mana, as I'm engaged in this request with faezejam, let me explain more:

Currently we can select some units as controlled units and some units as approaching ones. What we expect is that we have only one set of units as controlled ones and any approaches among these controlled units should be consider as a trigger to notification. In other word if we have selected 20 units as controlled units then system consider any approach/move away among these units as a trigger. It's clear that in such algorithm we only select one set of units (not like current feature that we first select one set of units as controlled units  and then another set of units as approaching units).

I hope this make the idea clear for you.

Hello Hamed hhamedk,

Thank you for additional details and explanation. Now your idea is absolutely clear.

At the current moment, units that are selected as controlled cannot be selected as those whose approach/move away is controlled (i.e. you cannot select an unit twice). For this reason, in order to control all units, you have to create so many notifications. My guess is that the task can be done in the following way:
1) make it possible to add the same units as controlled and as units, in case of approaching or moving away from which a notification should be triggered;
2) limit the triggering of the notification to itself

Such improvement will allow not to change essentially the algorithm of work with the given type of notification (to leave a choice of two sets of units), but thus essentially to simplify adjustment and to reduce quantity of created notifications. In other words, for the situation described by faezejam, you will need to create only one notification instead of a hundred.

Dear mana, the way you have offered will work. Please put it in backlog.
