Event Logging Overview


This section will show you how to manage event alerts for your location(s). Email alerts can be set up and customized to inform whomever you choose (owners, managers, tech support, etc) of specific events that occur at your location. These alerts are used to inform your stores of issues with orders or changes made to your store’s settings.

  2. Click the pencil icon to the left of the Global Alert that you wish to edit

  3. Enter the email address where you would like the alert sent

  5. Repeat above steps for each Global Alert that needs editing


Filter to View Specific Events

You have the ability to filter and view specific events for your location. This will remove all events other than the one you selected in the dropdown:


Recent Events

Recent Events sections will be the spot you’ll want to check first if your location is experiencing issues. It will show you anytime an order is voided, transferred, refunded, and/or escalated, and any errors that your store has experienced. These Events will show the time that the Event occurred and who performed the Event, if applicable. Use the Filter dropdown to view only certain events.

Note: It is important to select a location before trying to view the recent events tab of the event logging tab.
