  • Hi Francine, great question! Yes, the alert will be re-triggered, and all users will see it again, even if they've already dismissed it.

  • If I update an alert that's already been published, do users receive the updated alert as well? As in, if they dismiss the original alert and I update it, will they see an updated banner if I change the information?
