Notifications Page

Another useful feature of Ping Monitor is that it can send notification e-mails to a preset e-mail address, play specific sounds and show balloon tips on occurrence of certain events. This feature can be configured on the Notifications preference page Pic 1, and the messages are sent using the E-mail Options specified. The e-mail message subject and body used for creating notification messages can be configured on the Notification Templates preferences page. The placeholders that can be used in the templates are described in the Using Placeholders part of this guide. The sounds to be played can be configured on the Sounds Configuration preference page. Please note, that sounds are played and balloons are displayed only for those user sessions, where the client program is running.

Configuring notifications

Pic 1. Configuring notifications

To access the notifications configuration page, click the Preferences button in the Application Menu and switch to the Notifications preference page using the appropriate link in the navigation bar on the left of the Preferences dialog within the Monitoring Part group. On the page that opens, you can check the events you want to send notification messages, show balloon tips and play sounds for. It is possible to specify the number of iterations and interval between iterations for connection status notifications, so you can choose to loop the notification for a specific number of times or until the connection status changes again.
