Alerts

Alerts can be configured within Hudu to help keep your team aware and informed of upcoming events! Alerts can be configured for:
 
  • Single expirations: Generates a separate, individual alert for each expiration of a certain type, expiring within a set number of trigger days.
  • Expiration list: Generates a single alert with a list view of all expirations expiring within a set number of trigger days.
  • Website down: Generates an alert when a website of your choice appears down.

  • Password created/updated: Generates an alert when a password has been created and/or updated.
  • Record Created/Updated/Deleted: Generates an alert when a record has been created, updated, or deleted.

    In order to start setting up alerts within Hudu, you'll first need to have at least a single expiration within a client interface. Visit Expirations for additional information.
