Currently, our SCOM notifications are via PowerShell with colour coding in the message body, but I’d like to make the message subject colour coded within the mail client view so that you can see at a glance whether it’s a new critical alert (red), or a closed alert (green).
Any ideas if it’s possible to have something like Outlook’s conditional formatting applied to SCOM notifications on an organisation wide scale, or would users have to configure it themselves? I’ve read that you can’t push out Outlook conditional formatting via GPO so is there a way I could use the current PS script?
What about using emoji’s? I was just experimenting with putting a ⚠️ in the subject line.
You could have a channel for ‘new’ alerts and a channel for ‘closed’ alerts and use different emoji’s.
Not quite the conditional formatting you needed, but is an alternative idea.
Huge list of them here you could use.
I Sometimes “theme” my (visio) dashboards around Christmas, Easter, Star Wars Day, etc. Tempted to do it in Alert emails now… 🙂 🚀 🎅
As an idea, you might get some mileage from creating a script that creates an outlook rule that actions on incoming messages. Not sure if you can change colour of subject lines though – have a play.
