Advanced notifications for your backups

We support emailSlackDiscordPushover real-time notifications.

You receive both, success and error notifications when you run backups on-demand.

For scheduled backups, you only receive notifications for backup failures after all retries are exhausted.

You may select to receive both types of notifications all the time.

Configure notification channels

By default, you'll receive an email notification whenever a backup fails. You can disable this option from the "Notifications" tab of your backup.

You can enable backup error notifications to be sent to Slack and Discord on that page too.

Configure notification email

Sometimes you may want to forward all backup notification emails to your developer to have him/her take action if backups fail.

In this case you can change the backup notification email in your SimpleBackups account by following these steps:

  • Log in to your account.
  • Under the Team Settings area, change the Notification email to the desired email address.
