If you are required to show a message to your employees that they are being monitored (due to your company policy or other compliance reasons), you can set up a simple Agent Schedule-based rule. See the instructions below to learn how:

1. Click the BEHAVIOR > Policies menu:

7. Select the Actions tab. Turn on an action such as WARN. Enter a message to be displayed to the user when they login. You can turn on the USE HTML TEMPLATE option to display the alert in a HTML box. This way, you can for example, direct them to your monitoring policy using a HTML tag such as:

All your activities are monitored as per the <a href="https://acme.com/monitoring-policy.html">company policy</a>.
