Intro to Alerts
Alerts allow you to listen for on-chain events and receive notifications when they occur in a place most convenient for you and your team, like email, Slack, or PagerDuty.
Tenderly Alerting listens for events on the blockchain and sends real-time notifications to your desired destination when the event occurs. This can be email, your favorite messaging app, an incident monitoring system, or webhooks and Web3 Actions.
With Tenderly Alerting, you can stay informed about desired or undesired events related to transitions, wallets, smart contracts, or any other activity on the network. This enables you to identify and resolve smart contract transaction issues faster. Alerts can also aid in the early detection of operational, code, or security issues.
