Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Pulse service not working

Using a Test based on the standard Pulse service, no Change is being registered...
- there is no Filter specified
- there is a Change Notifier set up (2 in fact, Sax & Twitter)
- both Notifiers work fine on their own
- the Preview... button (when editting the test) shows the current date & time including seconds
- each test of Pulse succeeds, but no Change is registered
- the Activity View *does* show the changing time in the Details column:

What am I missing?

Re: Pulse service not working

You need a filter to detect a change. The simple "Change" filter will be enough.
