Folder notification timing

Folder notification timing

0 Votes

I'm using the folder notification email function and I'm wondering when the emails get sent out.  For instance, if I choose to get notification emails once a day, what specific time of day does that happen?  Is there a way to customize it?




Currently when the notifications are set for 1 hour it is not clear if the notification will be sent 1 hour after the 1st file is uploaded/modified, or if the notification is recurring on an hourly schedule.  If it's on an hourly schedule we should be able to set the notification to occur on the hour e.g.

Notify every 5 minutes on the minute: 00 - 04 (notifications would occur every 5 minutes on the minute i.e. 1:03, 1:08, etc.

Notify Hourly beginning at 1:00 PM (Notifications would occur every hour on the hour)

Notify every 24 hours starting at  8:00 AM (would send a notification out daily at 8 AM)


It would be very helpful to know when the alerts are being sent and having some control over it.

Thank you,

Hi Patrick,

That is an interesting question. I know of the setting, but not about when they are triggered. I will get this information and write back to you.
