    Hi David- Thank you for submitting this feature request. We are currently looking at making some major improvements to our alert and notification system in the first half of 2021. One piece of functionality we're exploring is the ability to link Fivetran's alerts to different paging tools. If you could answer a few questions, that would be really helpful as we explore this further:

    1. What tool or tools do you use today?
    2. Would you want all Connector errors to generate a page, or a subset of your Connectors?
    3. Would leveraging an "email based" integration, such as this, work for your use-case over a specific API? Assuming we clean up the notifications to work well with email based alerting.

    Hi David- Following up here and hoping you could answer the questions in my earlier comment. Thanks!

    1. What tool or tools do you use today? OpsGenie with an email integration
    2. Would you want all Connector errors to generate a page, or a subset of your Connectors? Subset of connectors. Some of our connectors are more critical than others so having the ability to configure which specific connectors generate pages seems to allow the most flexibility.
    3. Would leveraging an "email based" integration, such as this, work for your use-case over a specific API? Assuming we clean up the notifications to work well with email based alerting. This is what we use today. The challenge is that all Fivetran messages go through the email and not just errors / items needing to be actioned.

    Thanks David. Good news is we're currently working on a beta release that would enable you to send error (task) emails for all or a subset of your connectors to any email address. I don't have a timeline on this but would love to have you test it out once we're at that point.
