A. Advanced Format and Clue Definition
This appendix provides examples of relatively complex Alarm Filter Formats and Alarm Clues.
A.1. Alarm Filter Format Definition
The Alarm Filter Format describes the position of each field in the call record and assigns a
variable to that field. This gives PollCat III an impressive degree of flexibility, by allowing
the unit to adapt to any possible call record format.
During definition of the Alarm Filter Format, the following techniques can be used to simplify
and clarify the format.
Non-Alphabetic Order
Although Alarm Filter Formats are limited to the variables A through Z, these variables don't
necessarily have to be defined in alphabetic order.
Example: Assume you have defined an Alarm Filter Format that uses the letters A through C
to indicate various call record fields. After defining a series of clues based on this format, you
need to add a variable named "D", which identifies the field that contains the extension
number.
Rather than starting from scratch and completely redefining the format and all previously
defined clues, you can define a new format that retains the previously defined variables. The
old format is simply re-defined with the new variable inserted between two of the previous
variables as shown in the examples that follow. The last line in each example represents the
Alarm Filter Format.
