Atera's Alerts page is your central hub for monitoring the real-time health of your end-user devices. Once you have created an alert threshold profile and assigned it to a folder, agent, or customer, you will see all your alerts populate on this page. Additionally, you can set up Bitdefender alerts and Network Discovery alerts, both of which will also be displayed on the Alerts page. Plus, you can use the bulk action options to snooze, resolve, or delete alerts, or customize view configurations to fit your preferences.
