Email Notification period

Our service will send emails in the following period

  • Direct
  • Daily
  • Weekly

> Direct

This means that you get an email direct after the new software was found, so no delay.
Why is this so important? After an update you have a short period of time to test the new update before rolling out. With this short delay, you have much more time to check if your deployment works correct. Or if you need to change something in your process.

> Daily

With more and more software in your follow list, you get overwhelmed with Email Notifications about an update. It is easier for you to start your day with one email with all the informations about the software that we found an update for.
Choose your time when our service should send you an email. But notice that if you got no email there is nothing to update.

> Weekly

Did you even more time, our service can send you only on your specific day an email with all the information. But consider there is a long time period after that update got released and if its security related. You should update immediately your software.
