Creating a Notifications Email
To create an email notification, perform the following steps.
- Ensure the email address is already associated with the computer account.
- Click the Add Main Email button.
The Main Email check box notification options are displayed.
- Select the check box for each notification you want emailed.

The new Notifications template is displayed as shown below.
Click the Settings tab to display the Settings page.
An explanation for each setting follows:
If you opted to receive Backup Complete, Backup Warning, or Backup Failed notifications, you can choose to add Include Failed Items, Include No Files Notice, or both to those notifications. If a backup job is warning or failed, Include Failed Items lists which files failed during the backup. The Include No Files Notice notifies you if the backup job backed up no new files.
No Recent Backups
This option notifies you if a backup has not run after a specified period of time. You can specify how long that period of time is, as well as how often the No Recent Backups notification is sent.
Similar to the No Recent Backups notification, this notification notifies you if a backup job has run longer than a certain period of time.
Recurring-Interval Scheduled Backups
Recurring-interval scheduled backups are ones which may run many times everyday.
Recurring-interval scheduled backups have the potential to trigger many notifications in a short amount of time. To deal with this scenario, you can choose to disable Backup Complete, or Backup Warning notifications entirely for these sorts of backup sets. Additionally, you may choose to only receive a Backup Failed notification for recurring-interval scheduled backups if they fail a specific number of times, consecutively.
Now that you have created your template, you can apply it to one or multiple computer accounts.
