Send a test notification from Oh Dear

There's no need to bring down a site or jump through crazy hoops in order to test if your notification settings are working. We've got you covered!

Sending test notifications

Whether you're configuring site- or team-level notifications, you'll find a Send test tab at the very top of each one.

For each of the configured destinations, you'll find a Send test button. And you guessed it, if you click on that one - we'll send a test alert.

The test alert

This will be distinguished from all other alerts because its text will say "A test notification".

If you receive the test notification, you're all set!
