2-Configure Your Account

After creating your account, there’s a few more steps required in order to make full effective use of your subscription.

Add notification recipients

When we record an event related to your organisation, we will send messages for relevant events over the desired channels. We will automatically add the first user as a notification recipient during registration.

To add more, go to Settings / Notification Recipients, add the new recipient details as an email address or a webhook (specifying any authentication headers required), and which notifications should be sent here. You can also edit or delete existing entries using the actions menu (the 3 dots icon to the right edge of each row on the table).

Set your whitelisted sources

A whitelisted source will be considered as ‘trusted’ if it interacts within any of the seeds we monitor (for instance, as the sender of an email to a seed). You might want these configured to prevent notifications from your own outbound email to customers, or to allow for trusted 3rd parties, so that you don’t receive notifications for events originating from your own domain or your trusted partners,  you should create whitelisted sources. We will automatically populate this with your own domain during registration.

To add more, go to Settings / Whitelisted Sources, add the new whitelisted source as an email address or a domain, and set a timeframe for how long you would like each seed to respect the whitelisted source for. Existing whitelisted sources can be edited or deleted using the actions menu (the 3 dots icon to the right edge of each row on the table).

Add users

Users are your team-mates and colleagues within your organisation. You can add, edit and remove their accounts, assigning them privileges of Admin (for access to organisational settings), User (for interaction with seeds) or Read Only (for viewing of seeds and events only)

To create a new user, go to Settings / Users, and complete all fields on the form, carefully selecting the appropriate role, and click SAVE. This will send a confirmation email to the new user, and ask them to set their password then give them access to the platform.

Existing users can be edited or deleted using the actions menu (the 3 dots icon to the right edge of each row on the table).

Validate your domain

We use domain names within some of our seeds, and want to first see that you have the rights to authorise this. We do this by asking you to place a TXT entry within your DNS zone records. We will automatically add the domain of the first user during registration, and hold it pending validation.

To use different domains, go to Settings / General and add new. Enter the domain name you wish to use and click Save.

To validate a domain, first you must create a DNS entry by copying the related token value, then go to your DNS provider and create a new TXT entry using the token as the value. Then, return to seedata.io and click Validate within the actions menu (the 3 dots icon to the right edge of each row on the table).
