Enhanced External Notifications Release Notes (3.48)

ActivTrak’s latest release includes enhanced external notifications allowing for easy-to-use and read alarm notifications within Slack, Microsoft Teams, or any custom webhook of your choosing. In addition, we have fixed 4 bugs to improve the usability of the app.

Enhanced External Notifications

For each alarm, users now have the opportunity to send external notifications in addition to emails. These external notifications extend the previous feature of webhook notifications by making it easier to send notifications to the two popular messaging tools - Slack and Microsoft Teams. 

When configuring an alarm, you can now select Slack, Microsoft Teams, or enter a custom webhook URL. When selecting Slack or Microsoft Teams you will enter your company’s custom chat webhook URLs to allow for alarm notifications to appear within a messaging app channel. This notification will include all the pertinent alarm information such as Alarm Name with a link back to the alarm log, Time and date alarm fired, User and computer who fired the alarm, and details on the app or website visited.
