To stay informed on fleet activity, create alerts for the events that matter most to you and your fleet administrators. To minimize alert fatigue, consider a narrow scope where you alert contacts in a need-to-know and requires immediate action approach.
Each alert supports a max of 4000 devices.
Select Alerts () > Configure.
Under the More menu, filter alerts by Status (Enabled or Disabled) or by Type (Harsh Event, Scheduled Maintenance, Speed, or Temperature).
Select an alert type to modify the alert configuration or create a new alert by selecting an alert from the Add an Alert section.
See Alert Types for information about each alert configuration.
Configure the settings for the alert.
This varies by alert type but typically includes the conditions under which Samsara should send the alert and the specific devices for which you are configuring the alert. In addition, your alert configuration can include:
The alert Schedule: Designate time range and days of the week during which you want to silence notifications.
Send Alert To: Choose one or more contacts in your address book to whom you want to send the alert. You can also add New or Manage existing contacts.
Send Webhook Notifications: If you use Webhooks to send notifications for Samsara events to external servers, you can set the Webhook you want to use as a recipient for notifications. Click Manage to set up a new integration.
Send Slack Notifications: If you set up Slack to post a message when there is an alert, you can choose the Slack integration you want to use. Click Manage to set up a new integration.
Description: Enter an optional description that identifies or describes the purpose or scope of the alert.
Save the alert configuration.
At any time, you can return to the Alerts page to manage your alert configurations and View Alert Incidents.
