Using alerts

The Alerts page in the Settings window allows to disable each of the alert types and specify additional settings for the disk space alert.

Alerts can be viewed in the Common reports mode:

  • Group summary contains a complete list of alerts for the computers in the group. All alerts in the Storage can be viewed in the summary for the root group.
  • The Alerts category in the report on selected assets displays all alerts for the selected asset or assets. The number of alerts for the selected assets is displayed to the right of the category in the Sidebar. The shortcut to the Alert settings becomes available when you hover a mouse cursor over the category.

Alert messages can be included in the Table report when creating a custom template.

The Alerts presence assistant displays the number of alerts in the Network tree and allows to view a list of alerts for each asset in a hint, as well as to hide all the devices that don't have any alerts.

When building a report on alerts, use this assistant to hide assets that don't have any alerts.
