# Procedure Alert Submission (PALERT.E)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
The Process Alert procedure is used to setup an alert for monitoring by the system. The user creates an alert by selecting from a list of predefined templates (defined with PADEF.E) and supplying any information requested. These alerts may be defined as one time events where the event is deleted after the event was triggered, or as persistent events that continue to report on recurring events.
