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.

Grouping Notifiers

Is there a way of setting up groups of notifiers? I have two sets of machines: some need to have a collection of six notifiers (email, sound, log for up or down states) and some only use 4 notifiers. As far as I can see, there is no way to create groupings of notifiers for easy addition to the individual tests. I guess if I had been smart about this, I could have simply created a template for each kind of test, then duplicated it.

But I wasn't that smart...

Re: Grouping Notifiers

That isn't currently available, but is definitely coming in a future version.
