Upcoming System Enhancement - Automated Dispatch and Messaging System (ADaMS)
The AESO is scheduled to implement an enhancement for ADaMS functionality that allows market participants to select and acknowledge multiple ADaMS messages at a time through an ‘Acknowledge All’ checkbox. This enhancement is a part of the AESO’s ongoing efforts to improve market participant interactions with ADAMS. This enhancement is scheduled for release at the end of April.
The Acknowledge All checkbox will be located below the ‘Ack’ column label under the Current Message section of the Participant View in ADAMS. The Current Message section displays all messages that have been issued to an ADaMS user but not yet acknowledged and may be related to system availability, dispatch instructions, market conditions, Dispatch Variance Notification, etc. When the checkbox is selected by clicking on it, all the radio buttons beside the each messages in the Current Messages section will be filled. The selected messages can now all be acknowledged when the Submit button is clicked. Prior to this enhancement release, ADaMS users were limited to selecting and acknowledging one message at a time. As with previous functionality, the messages selected and submitted will be moved the Message History section; and the option for selecting and acknowledging a single message using the radio button will remain.
Below is a screen shot of the Current Message section with the Acknowledge All checkbox enhancement:
Closer to the enhancement date release, a reminder of the enhancement functionality, details of the release, and updates to the applicable user manuals will be sent to market participants through the AESO Stakeholder Newsletter.
