Configuring Notification Settings

By default, notifications will be sent on all backup job completion results, including Success, Warning and Failure. To turn off notifications for certain results types, clear the corresponding check boxes. If you configure backup jobs to perform retry attempts, then you can use the Suppress notifications until last retry option. In this case, notifications will only be sent after the last attempt:

  • If the job fails, then on the last retry.
  • If the job completes with Success or Warning, then on the last completion status.
  • If the job is scheduled to Terminate job if it runs longer than <interval>, then on the last attempt within that interval.

Configuring Notification Settings Note:

E-mail settings will be applied to all backup jobs configured for all organizations added to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.
