[00:00] Email notification profiles can make use of an audit profile to log information about the notification. By default, the system does not record this information in an audit log, but we can easily change that. I'm in the configure section of my gateway. I'll scroll down just so you can see I am under alarming and notification. And I have my email profile right here. So I'm going to go ahead and edit. I'm going to click the edit button on the right. Now we need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page. So past all these other settings here, you go down, down, down, down, down until you get to the auditing section here. Now assuming you have that audit profile already configured, all we need to do is click on the dropdown here and select your audit profile. I have one called audit prof so I'll select that. And you can tell from the description here, we will record the email notifications when they go out, so when we try to send a notification out. As well as any acknowledgment information from the notification. So if I have two-way acknowledgment configured on this profile here, whenever a user tries to acknowledge an alarm from the notification, we can log information about that event as well. Once you've selected your profile, click save changes and you're all done.
