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, we have the option to select whether or not you want to trigger the USB alarm on insert and/or writing to the drive. You can also select option conditions to specify a certain user or a certain computer.

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.  A pop-up message will be the ability to send a user on the account an email notification.

As an option pop-up message, we have provided the following as a suggestion. 

$User$, a USB drive was detected. This is against company policy.

Once a user has been selected to receive the email notification, an email subject and body will need to be set. Keep in mind that anything with "$" around it, (For example, $Time$) is a variable, and when the email is sent, it will have this information properly filled out. You may also set an alarm risk score in order to gauge how likely a user is to be at a higher risk for triggering an alarm.
