New email notification settings

September 21, 2017

Wouldn’t it be great if you could receive an email notification from Detectify every time a new finding is discovered? We have good news for you – our latest release brings you this useful functionality! Based on the great feedback we received from our customers, we have updated Detectify email notifications settings that now allow you to customise the content of the emails you receive.

What’s new?

You can now adjust email notification settings on your account page by selecting one of the following options:

No notifications
This setting allows you to opt out of email notifications from Detectify and can be a good choice if you log in on a regular basis or are using one of our developer tool integrations to stay up to date with your scans.

Scan notifications
This is the standard email notification setup that sends you an email when we finish scanning your scan profile. If you like being notified when a new report is available, but prefer checking out the details in the tool, this is the setting for you.

Custom notifications
This is where the fun begins! Enable this setting, then define email triggers (scan started/finished, high severity findings, medium severity findings, and new findings only) for each of your scan. If you’re working with multiple scan profiles, prioritisation is key and detailed notifications can save you a lot of time.

Set up custom notifications

To enable custom notifications, go to your account, select Custom Notifications and click on Save Settings.

Head over to your scan profile, select Settings > Integrations, scroll all the way down to Email Notifications and specify the notification triggers for your scan profile. All set!

Please note that selecting multiple email triggers might generate a lot of emails. Changing email notification settings in Integrations will affect all users in your team, so remember to give your fellow team members a heads up before changing custom notifications.

Happy scanning!
