IT Glue™ just launched a powerful new feature — Notifications. Never miss an expiration again, and use it to make document or password updates instantly visible. Start freeing the minds of your IT crew!

The Notifications feature promises to revolutionize how you use IT Glue by turning information stored in IT Glue into actionable items automatically.

What it does

Notifications will allow our partners to send emails, Slack alerts, or trigger an almost endless number of other actions thanks to the power of webhooks, when things change, expire or are about to expire in IT Glue.

 

What this means

It means enhanced scalability, and efficiency. Instead of manually tracking when items with an expiry date are going to expire, IT Glue will send you a notification when it is upcoming. You choose how you want to receive the notification, and when, based on your needs. This means you spend less time tracking expirations, and can move straight to dealing with the issue proactively. Your clients get enhanced service from you, and you get a more efficient operation.

Examples

Let’s say you have a warranty expiring soon. You can schedule a notification to be alerted 30 days prior to the warranty expiration. You can choose the best way for you to receive this alert so that you can deal with it. If you want, you can create a ticket via the notifications feature so that you are starting to action the expiration immediately. You can set the timing of the alert, too, so that you receive it when you need it.

What partners say

Keeping track of domain and SSL certificate expirations has plagued us for some time. We’ve found email reminders from registrars unreliable and calendars too cumbersome to manage. With IT Glue Notifications, we finally have a way to store and track all of our clients’ domains and certificates in our documentation platform, while having the huge benefit of generating notifications for upcoming expirations. It has already saved us from near misses. When your clients rely on you to be on top of your game, a tool like that is something you can’t put a price on.

Caleb Albers, Keystone IT

With the release of the new Notifications feature, IT Glue has taken a quantum leap forward in the world of documentation and service delivery. No longer is data static and inanimate. It now comes to life by way of email, webhook or Slack API integration to say “Hey, look at me!” or “Hey, renew me!” at just the right time, allowing us to deliver on the promise of managed services – being proactive!
