Thank you, that shows how to add audible alerts. We are asking if we can set to vibrate only.

@BeckyM , 

Hope you are doing well. Instead of selecting a notification sounds you may disable alert and enable vibrate only.  Please reach out to our Client Care Team at prosupport@tigerconnect.com to set up meeting to enable this function.
