You can set up email notifications within Hotjar to let you know when specific events occur, such as a charge being applied to your Account, or a daily report of responses from a Survey.
Ensure you receive notifications by allowing Hotjar's email addresses
All billing-related notifications will come from firstname.lastname@example.org and all tool-related notifications will come from email@example.com.
Feedback and Survey notifications
Email notifications can be enabled to alert you when there is a new Feedback widget or Survey response.
Go to Notifications in the View profile menu.
Choose the notifications you'd like to enable.
If these checkboxes are enabled, you will receive email notifications.
You must have Account Owner permissions to perform these steps. To see who the Account Owner is, visit the Team page while logged into Hotjar.
In addition to the Account Owner, billing notifications can be received by other team members by adding their email addresses on your Invoices page. The Account Owner can follow the steps below to set this up:
Click your profile image and select Billing. Then on the next page click Invoices.
This will take you to your Invoices page.
In the Billing and invoices made easy box, click Edit.
Enter the additional email addresses, then click Save.
All email addresses listed will receive future billing notifications starting from the next issued invoice.
