As part of Release 3.45.0, we have given new accounts a variety of new default alarms that display the full functionality of our alarm capabilities. All existing accounts can also follow this walkthrough to create the same alarm on your own account!

First, go to the Alarms page on the Dashboard and click on Create New Alarm.

Once the new alarm page has been brought up, you will see the title you created in the top left. If you are trialing the product, or have paid for it, you will find below the title that you can select which groups you would like to apply the alarm to. The default is set to All Users and Computers.

Under Conditions,  selecting Match Any will cause the alarm to trigger if any of the URLs were to be met on the list. Some of the ones we thought to include are: 

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Reddit
  • Snapchat
  • Tumblr
  • Tiktok
  • Nextdoor
  • Tinder
  • Myspace
  • bumble
  • hinge
  • OkCupid
  • Grindr

Once the conditions have been set properly, actions will become configurable. To set a screenshot to be captured, simply toggle the Screen Capture button on the left-hand side of the actions menu. Below is an option for screen capture and a pop-up message will be the ability to send a user on the account an email notification.

A pop-up message is a configurable way to gently remind your user that an activity may be against company policy, and we include variables to customize this message as you see fit.

The message that we will set is:

Hey, $User$ are you taking a break? Try setting a timer so you limit your $URL$ use to 10 minutes.
