Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. 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 will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

One Notifier for Changes, Recoveries, and Failures


When selecting which notification to use for a service, is there a way to make a notification available to all 3 change types (change, fail, or recover) in one line instead of creating three lines?

No, you currently need to add a line in the Edit Test window for each kind of notification. It's easy enough to do, though I agree a slight extra hassle when adding lots of tests.

I did add combo options for filters, so in theory that could be a useful enhancement for notifiers, too.
