Use rules to turn alerts on or off

By configuring a rule in the Google Admin console, you can turn alerts on or off. You can also use a rule to configure other settings, for example to configure alert center email notifications. 

You have two options for using rules to turn alerts on or off:

  • Turn alerts on for all reporting rules at once—From the alert center, you can enable alerts for all reporting rules with one click. Go to a banner at the top of the page, and click Turn On.
  • Turn alerts on or off one rule at a time—Turn alerts on or off one rule at a time from the rules page.

For step-by-step instructions, see the sections below.

  3. From the banner at the top of the page, click Turn On.

    Note: If you don't want to use this option, you can click Dismiss. By clicking Turn On or Dismiss, the banner will disappear, and any subsequent changes must be done for each rule individually from the rules page.
