Automatic Updates email only working on first update after setting email alert.

Hello Support, I have now set my profiles to auto-update using the command-line syntax method and that is working as expected. I have also set email alerts for myself on each profile. After setting the email alert and then running the update process, I get the expectedc email. When i run the exact update again right after the first one finishes, I do not recieve an email. Is there something I am missing? I even went as far as to delete the most recent day's data thinking "New" data would trigger it, but it did not. Thanks! John Ridgway

Answer:

Hi, Email alerts are set up to run once a day, week or month. You can select the period when you set up the alert. So if you run update twice in a row, the email will only be sent once, this of course to avoid that you get a whole slew of emails a day if you update your logaholic stats frequently. I hope this answers your question!
Michael, That's a great feature for alerts, and it explains what I am seeing! Thanks for the clarification! JohnR
