Configuring Global Notification Settings

Set up global notifications to monitor common events that may require attention. Remote Manager provides notifications through email messages, on the Customers with Notifications widget, or through your third-party software.

Tip:

Trend Micro recommends configuring global notification settings in such a way that the settings can apply to most of your customers. Global settings provide a quick way to configure individual customer notifications, although you can customize notification settings on a per customer basis.

  1. Go to Administration.
  2. In the System Settings section, click Configure notifications.

    The Administration > Configure notifications screen appears.

  3. In the Email Message Settings section, specify the Recipients that receive the notification email messages.
    • Account manager: Select the Licensing Management Account for the primary Remote Manager administrator that should receive email notifications for all customers.

    • Additional recipients: Manually type the email addresses of other people to whom Remote Manager should contact

      Note:

      Separate multiple entries using semicolons (;).

  4. In the Email Message Settings section, specify the Message Content that appears in the notification email messages.

      Section

      Description

      All License Events

      Select specific event types that you want to monitor from the list provided.

      Note:

      Remote Manager sends a separate consolidated email message containing all License Notifications for all customers.

      For more information about the notification events, see License Notifications.

      Worry-Free Business Security Services

      Select specific event types that you want to monitor from the list provided.

If an email address appears in both lists, Remote Manager blocks the Worry-Free Business Security Services notifications to the duplicate email addresses.
