Is there a way to adjust how often notifications are sent out at certain times?



Right now we have our notifications set to email us every 30 minutes a device is down. However, on the weekends we would like to adjust that to every 2 hours. Is there some way to schedule this? I have checked in the scheduling, but it looks like I can only turn the notifications off at certain times.

please consider using two notifications (and thus triggers) for such a scenario:

  • Notification 1, scheduled only on weekdays, with repeat settings of 30 minutes (on the trigger)
  • Notification 2, scheduled on weekends, with a repeat setting of 2 hours.

Best Regards.

how is it possible to set a notification that works in 2 different schedules? The Schedule is in an other tab and in the notifications tab there is noch possibility to allocate an schedule to the notification.

Please help.

Best regards.
