Can I globally set any Acknowlegement to expire (auto-unack) after a period of time?

When on-call assignments change, all previous "acked" alerts remain acked and silent indefinitely.  I would like any acked alerts to revert to "unacked" after a period of time.  Like a day or two.  How do I do that?

Have you tried adding a notification policy to 'auto restart' after X time?

Hi @Ben Gardella ,

Like @avarvel mentioned, we see most customers adding a Notification Policy that is configured to restart notifications after X-time following when the alert was created: 

These can be configured under a team's Policies tab and would look something like this:

Alternatively, if your alerts notify users through an escalation policy, you could repeat that escalation's rules and revert the alert back to an un-ack'd state:

Either option works! Simply a personal preference between one or the other. Let us know if you have any additional questions or issues.

Thanks. I'll try option one and see how it goes.
