NEW: Improved notification settings, per feature

Some users have told us that they would like to manage notifications on a feature level in Semonto. We have been working hard to make that possible.

What it was like before: general alert settings

In the past, the alert settings you created in Semonto applied to everything you tested for a specific URL. So if your preferred notification method was email, you would get email notifications about everything. For some users, that was inconvenient. For example, they would rather get push notifications when the website is down but email when a broken link is found. And for some things, they do not want to be alerted at all.

NEW: You can now manage notifications per feature

Notification settings have now been split up per feature. You can choose different notification settings for every test you run: uptime, broken links, mixed content, TLS/SSL certificates and PulseChecks. This way, you can disable notifications that are not important or select a different communication method for each test. We have many options: email, push notifications, voice calls, Slack messages, SMS text messages, webhooks, and even tweets.

For example:

I want to get notified by email, push notification and Slack message whenever my site is down. If my SSL certificate is about to expire or if any broken links are found, I only want to receive an email. And I do not want to get notified of mixed content. These would be the settings to apply:

You can also manage notifications per audience

A second improvement is that you can send different notifications to different people. For example, maybe all downtime notifications should go to the development team, while broken link notifications should go to the content managers.

For example:

Let’s say that Jelle and Kathy only want to receive notifications for the client websites they are responsible for. And the SSL certificate renewals are handled by a separate team. Then they could apply the following settings:

As you can see, the customization options are endless.
