Notifications Page

Another useful feature of Remote Installer is that it can send notification e-mails to a preset e-mail address 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 Notification E-mails part of this guide.

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 Installer 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.

Events may occur during two types of task execution: scheduled task execution and manual task execution. Scheduled task execution means that the task execution is initiated by the Remote Installer scheduling engine. Task execution via the Run feature is considered to be manual task execution.
