How to Change Email Notification Settings

It’s easy to change your New AD Email Notification Settings

1. LOGIN and look to the upper right hand corner of your screen. Click on MY EMAIL SETTINGS:

2. Select which Category you wish to receive:

3. The next time a New AD has been issued, (and it falls in the categories you selected), you will receive an Email message in your Inbox that looks similar to this:

4. If you do NOT receive the email, Check your SPAM or Junk box.  If you still do not get the email, there could be several reasons:

More lately, we’re automatically being blocked, either by the Internet Service Provider (like Comcast, Frontier, etc), and/or the Email Service (Gmail, Yahoo, etc), so the end recipient never has a chance to receive the message.

Currently, there doesn’t seem to be anything we can do about it.  If a Service opts to block our Emails, there is no easy way to change their decision.  Unfortunately, much of it is due to AI, and out of our control.

How to Delete an Appliance from Your AD Report

When deleting an Appliance from your AD Report, there are two (2) steps required to accomplish this task:

STEP 1:   Just below the top Heading area, and towards the bottom of your Report.

To delete the Appliance from the Heading Area, locate the exact Appliance, and click the Delete link to the right.

You will be asked to confirm that you truly wish to delete the appliance:

*Remember, Delete is permanent and cannot be retrieved, so we encourage you to proceed cautiously when deleting anything.

STEP 2:  To select the AD from further down in the Report, scroll down to locate the AD.  To the right, click the small CHECKBOX.

Scroll back up and click the red DELETE SELECTED ADs button:

Next, click the Confirm Delete button, or Cancel if you are unsure:

Even if you made a mistake, and delete by mistake, the Appliance AD can always be added back in, manually.  However, if you lost Notes with it, those cannot be recovered.
