Alarm Acknowledgement

In VTscada, is there a way to link a tag to an alarm acknowledgement button in the alarm window that can turn on or off a tag in the PLC?

Thanks.

We use two additional tags for every alarm to manage this.

An Alarm List tag to monitor a filtered alarm list transitioning from 1 to 0 alarms, and an IO tag which writes to a handshake bit that monitors the Alarm List tag, unlatching the alarm in the PLC.
