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.

For our Blocking Feature, we will redirect a website to websiteisblocked.com, preventing access to the website.

Under conditions, selecting Match All will force all conditions to need to be met for action is triggered. For this example, we have created a condition for URL as well as Titlebar. 

URL: websiteisblocked.com
Titlebar: website is not available

By default, this alarm will only trigger and report to the ActivTrak Alarm Log. You can customize this to include any user you wish to be notified by e-mail, or set a pop-up message to notify the end-user that accessing this site is not permitted. If you wish to get a screenshot image of this and any other tabs that may be open in the browser, set this alarm to collect a single screenshot.
