Customize Message Center in ThinkorSwim

Hi,

When a person sets alerts, these are populated in ToS' "Message Center" (which is on the top right of the main ToS window, between the icons for "Home Screen" and "Support").

I was wondering if you guys can help me figure out how to change the default format of the messages.
For example, I just want the ticker symbol instead of the current format which is "CHART ALERT [ time frame, TICKER NAME, study name, study properties]. As you can see, the default format can get very lengthy.

Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading!

While the message center isn't customizable. It can be detached and resized so you can see at a glance what symbol is in the alert.

Chart Alerts are sometimes slow being pushed to mobile phones... Whether slow signaling in Mobile TOS Apps is subjective...
Is there any way to auto get the message externally (not manually press the export button). E.g.
(1) Is there a log file where TOS store the message?
(2) Will TOS send chart alert through email & SMS?
Is anyone working on the same problem?
Is there any alternative ways to do it?
If not, I may start a project to work on it.
Thanks

1. No log file except whatever is being displayed in your Message Center
2. Yes, but only for a certain type of alert (i.e., alerts created by your scanner).
