h5. Overview

Contacts are individual definitions indicating who should get notified and how and when they should get notified in the event of a problem on your network.&nbsp;Contacts can then be applied within the tabs for _Contactgroups_, _Holidays_, and in the notification rule (_Notifications_ tab). Contact groups are definitions of one or more contacts and can be used to send alert or recovery notifications to a group of contacts.

| Suppress multiple alerts | If _checked_, no more than one notification for the&nbsp;_same_&nbsp;alert condition&nbsp;will be sent out to this particular contact. \\
If _unchecked_, indicates the contact will receive more than one notification for the _same_ alert condition, if more than one alert is sent in for that condition. \\ |
| Contact addresses | Sets the contact's information for notifications: email, phone, mobile, [Growl|http://growl.info/] address. |
