Ship notifications

Ship can send emails about three different events:

  • A new build version of an app is available in Ship.

  • Ship successfully published the app.

  • Ship failed to publish the app.

These notifications can be sent to any number of different email addresses. When a new email address is added to the notifications list, Ship sends a confirmation email to the address: after confirmation, notifications should work.

  5. Click Add.

The address should appear in the list below, with Pending as its status. An email is sent to the address: the recipient must click Confirm Notifications in the email to start receiving notifications.

Configuring notifications in Ship

You can pick and choose the Ship events about which you want to notify different people. For example, it’s possible to only send notifications about a failed publishing event if you do not want to be bothered when things go well! And of course you can send different notifications to different email addresses.

  1. Open your app’s Ship page.

  2. Click Settings.

  3. Go to the Notifications tab.

  4. Use the toggles under the different event types.

  5. Hit Save once all notifications are set.
