New Enhancements to LogMeIn Central Alerts Available

We have released new enhancements in LogMeIn Central Alerts to help you easily manage and monitor remote computers running LogMeIn Pro.  Now you can do more with Central Alerts to proactively maintain systems.

Updates include a new Event alert to monitor event code activity on a computer or group.

You can now use the improved Event alert rule to monitor event code activity on a computer or across a group of computers. You can define multiple event sources, event categories or event identifiers, and you can also define exceptions. The rule will alert when an event log entry that matches the specified criteria is written to one of the standard Windows event logs.

In addition to the new Event alert rule, we have also added many new usability enhancements to make it easier than ever to create and set up alerts as well as the ability to set alert rules as Active or Disabled within an alert package.

Step-by-step: Create an Alert Package with the new Event alert rule

  1. In LogMeIn Central, click the Alerts tab.
  2. Click Manage Alert Packages.
  3. Click Add Alert Package. The Add Alert Package page is displayed.
  4. Give your Alert Package a Name.
  5. Add rules to the package. (Note: You can define multiple event source, event category or event identifiers to look for, and you can also define exceptions.)
  6. Continue to add rules as required.
  7. Click Save Alert Package. The package is saved and ready to be assigned to computers or groups of computers.

Paired with LogMeIn Pro, the all-new Central Alerts improves insight into system health and status so you can keep machines up and running. Log in to try the new Alerts today.

We’ve updated LogMeIn Central with new search enhancements based on customer feedback to help make computer management easier for users who need to identify and find computers from the Home tab and main computer list.

Simply select the drop-down menu next to the search box (see image above) and you’ll be able to search based on specific criteria for better computer management.

  • Any Field – search all criteria simultaneously
  • Visible Fields – search criteria shown in Detail View
  • Alerts – search by number of unacknowledged alerts (results show # or higher)
  • Status – search computer state in LogMeIn – just type “Online, Offline or In Session”
  • Description – search by computer description (very helpful if you use computer descriptions as tags within a group)
  • Group – search by computer group
  • Version – search by LogMeIn host build number or version
  • Subscription – search by Free or Pro

You can also enter multiple keywords – for example you can enter “default online” with a search set to ‘Any field’, and this will typically return all online computers in the default group.
