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.

Test a Notifier

Is there a way to 'test' a notifier in the edit notifier section?

In other words, send a test email or text message without a real incident triggering it?

Re: Test a Notifier

Hi Rob,

Yes, simply select the notifier and click the reload toolbar button, or choose File ▶ Notify Now.

(You can do the same for reports, to manually publish them.)
