Which approach is better; creating notification rules for each Event Definition I want to be notified on, or using broad notification rules not tied to individual EDs?

I know you can use the icon next to each Event Definition to create a quick notification rule, but that feels like too much work, not to mention too much of a chance that I'm going to miss something.

  • You're really better off using broader rules that look at event severity, time blocks, logical groups. I only use the quick notification rule for exceptional situations, where there truly is only one possible chain of a single event definition and one notification, and that is very rare. Otherwise, you risk having events go off that have no notification associated with them.
