Power Monitoring Expert 8.1 - Web Application is not beeping for Unacknowledged Alarms

Issue
After upgrading from PME 8.0 to PME 8.1, the Web Application no longer gives an audible alert for Unacknowledged alarms that are no longer active. 

Product Line
Power Monitoring Expert 8.1

Environment
Web Applications Alarms Sound

Cause
The audible alarm alert performance was changed between PME 8.0 and PME 8.1. See the tables below:

PME 8.0
  Active Alarms Historical Alarms
Unacknowledged Alarms Audible Alert Audible Alert
Acknowledged Alarms    

​PME 8.1
  Active Alarms Historical Alarms
Unacknowledged Alarms Audible Alert

In Power Monitoring Expert 8.0, an Audible Alert will sound for all Unacknowledged Alarms, regardless if the alarm is active or inactive. 
In Power Monitoring Expert 8.1, an Audible Alarm will only sound for Unacknowledged Active Alarms.

Note: In PME 8.2, the alarming behavior will be configurable and users will be able to choose between the PME 8.0 or PME 8.1 behavior. For information on configuring the audible alarms in PME 8.2, see FA316357
