When working with automated workflows, it's paramount to remain informed about their status and performance. Make.com offers a robust platform for creating automations, and setting up notifications within your scenarios can keep you promptly updated. Here's how to configure notification settings in Make.com to keep abrecount of your automations:

Step 1: Access Your Scenario

First, log in to your Make.com account and navigate to the dashboard. Select the scenario you want to receive notifications for, by clicking on it. You’ll need to ensure the scenario is created and operational before adding notifications.

Step 2: Insert a Notification Module

Inside your scenario editor, at the point where you’d like to receive a notification (usually at the end or upon an error), click on the plus sign (+) to add a new module. In the search bar, type "Notifications" and select the "Notification" module from the options that appear.

Step 3: Configure Your Notification

After adding the notification module, configure the specifics:

  • Title: Give a concise title that summarizes the notification context.
  • Message: Draft the body of the notification, detailing what the alert pertains to. You can insert data from previous modules using the output mapping feature.
  • Severity: Choose the importance level for the notification (Info, Warning, or Critical), which helps in prioritizing attention.
  • Sound: Decide if you want an audible alert when the notification arrives (useful for critical alerts).

Step 4: Choose Notification Method

Make.com allows you to receive notifications through the service itself or other platforms like email, SMS, or webhooks for custom integrations. Select your preferred medium within the notification module and provide necessary details such as email addresses or phone numbers.

Step 5: Set Conditions (Optional)

For tighter control, use filters to specify conditions that trigger notifications. You may only want an alert if a certain threshold is met or an error occurs. To do this, add a filter between the triggering module and notification module and set your desired conditions.

Step 6: Test Your Notification

Before relying on the notifications for your workflow, test them. Run the scenario manually by clicking "Run once". Ensure your notification appears as expected in the selected method.

Step 7: Save and Activate

After testing, save your changes and activate or re-activate the scenario. Now, Make.com will send notifications according to your settings whenever the scenario runs.

Following these steps lets you effectively monitor your workflows on Make.com. By staying informed about your automates' performance with realtime notifications, you can promptly address any issues and enjoy seamless automation.
