How to setup email alerts in spice works network monitor

Created#
More Posted time:Jul 30, 2018 22:02 PM
We are setting up Spiceworks network monitor & we would like to set up alerts. I have the below questions:


1. How to set up alerts.


2. We have servers located in different locations and those servers are monitored from one location. However, we don't need to send the alerts of all devices to all IT staff, We need to segregate the  devices and sent the alerts to the concerned IT person


Suppose I have 10 servers and If Servers A,B & C are in LOC1 and there is 1 IT engineer, he should be able to receive alerts of the devices in his location. How to do this?


Thanks in advance for assistance

@zoeldjian .
Alerts can be enabled on the SpiceWorks Settings page.  You can find more information on alerts here: https://community.spiceworks.com/support/network-monitor/docs/setup
According to SpiceWorks All admins on the app will receive the notifications.  There is no way to group alerts, devices, or admins at this time.

The Network Monitor's alerts are sent through our servers to the address of the user logged into the NetMon.


If you're using a generic account to let multiple folks in, that's the address that will get the alerts.


If you're signing in as yourself, make sure that emails from *.spiceworks.com are allowed through your spam filters services.
