Reports: Alert Summary



This article describes the Alert Summary section of the Datto appliance GUI.


The Alert Summary is a component of the Advanced Alerting feature, which sends an initial alert when your device has an error, and then summarizes subsequent alerts for the day. You must enable Advanced Alerting on your appliance before this option will become available.


1. To enable or disable Advanced Alerting, open the GUI for the device.
2. Click the Configure tab, and click Device Settings, as shown in Figure 1.
