1. Quickly Activate and Schedule Reports in the New Notifications Area
Defender has a new look and better functionality with Notifications. It’s a centralized manager area for all notifications and reports.
The Notifications area gives you a complete overview of the reports, whether it’s enabled or not, gravatars icons of the email recipients, and reports’ frequency.
You can configure and disable reports in one-click. If a report can be enabled, you’ll see a plus sign next to it.
Once clicked, you can choose who to send email notifications to.
You can easily search for recipients to add by username or click on an individual user from the list. Alternatively, you can always invite a user by email by clicking Invite by Email.
If the report is already enabled, clicking on the gear icon will allow you to configure it by adding recipients, frequency of reports, day & time of reports, and additional settings.
