How To Notify Multiple Contacts With Device ManageR

Once you’ve created an Action/Notification List with multiple email Actions, you can associate it with an Alert, as shown below.


In this example, because we’ve chosen our ‘Email IT & Facilities Staff’ Action/Notification List, Device ManageR will send emails to all four contacts when the internal temperature on this Room Alert crosses the high threshold we’ve set.
