- Add alerts and notifications needed for vaccines within Stock Management
- Alerts aim to alert a user that action should be taken.
Vaccines May 2017 Workshop Attendees: Ryan McWhorter (UNICEF), Dorthe Konradsen (UNICEF), Teresa Ha (UNICEF), Brandon Bowersox-Johnson (VillageReach), plus some attendees who joined on day 2 or 3.
OpenLMIS version 3.1.0 previously delivered an initial beta of stock management. See Stock Management for the detailed list of features.
- The Notification service in OpenLMIS would be leveraged for this. The workshop did not discuss specific kinds of notifications (email versus SMS versus WhatsApp etc).

|3||Near Expiry notification|
Near Expiry notification
Perhaps by expiration date, to trigger the notification. This is most relevant at resupply nodes, not at service delivery points. At re-supply nodes there is a chance to do something about it and get your stock out to a facility who might use it. But at a service delivery point there is less they can do about it.
MVP |We are sorting the fulfillment suggestions by expiry date|
As a National/Central ..., I want to trigger an alert by product and lot so that any facility with that lot is aware of a recall.

|7||Notification of Vaccines Problems|
At the workshop, we determined that all the parts of this were already covered elsewhere. Stock expired (covered elsewhere); VIMS 3 and 4 (covered); missing supplies (covered by low stock alert).

Below is a list of questions to be addressed as a result of the vaccine workshop:
|1||Notification service in OpenLMIS may some day offer more formats (see note in Assumptions above). What mode of notification would the next top priority?|
Out of Scope
- (see Next in User Stories above)
- SMS reminders
- In application reminders
