The Notifications tab of the Restore Policy wizard  allows you to choose from which restore status you want to receive alert notifications. Email notifications let you, and your staff, remotely monitor the status of the restores you have automated with this policy. The status of the restore operations determines the status of your policy. When your restores are successfully completed on scheduled, the policy is considered okay.

Choose the status you want to monitor, type the email address of each recipient, select the desired alert frequency for each operation, and then click Next.

You must configure your mail server settings before SQL Safe can send e-mail notifications. Click Configure E-mail to check your settings. For more information, see Configure e-mail settings for alert notifications.

When is the email sent?

SQL Safe sends an email to the specified recipients when the selected operation status occurs. Because SQL Safe checks the status of your restore operations every minute, your alert notifications provide a real-time indication of the health of your service level agreements and disaster recovery plans for the SQL Server instances covered by this policy.

However, how often SQL Safe notifies about a specific status update depends on the notification frequency you select. For example, if you want to receive an email whenever a restore fails, even when the failures occur sequentially, choose to receive notifications every time the event occurs.

After defining your setting in this tab, click Next to define your settings for your policy.
