New Look Status

We totally re-designed the main status view - it's now clear and easy on the eye, yet information-packed to provide at-a-glance monitoring.

Watchers can now be organised into groups for easy management of multi-Watcher environments by using simple folders and drag 'n drop.

All watchers show their last successful scan completion time in addition to a success or failure indicator, and repeating watchers show their next scheduled time too.

Sorting the listing by Status puts running watchers first, with ordered schedules and paused following, making it easy to see what's up next or what's happening right now.


New Look Setup

Watcher configuration has been totally revamped for vastly improved clarity and ease of use, which makes complex configurations a breeze, and advanced features such as Filter functions and specific file/folder Exclusions are now easily accessible using the built-in browser.


New Notifications and Logs

Version 3 now takes full advantage of the macOS Notification Center to provide interactive & highly informative notifications, so much so that we added a complete notification history lookup - you'll never miss a thing.

To compliment the all-new handy Notification History we added a Log Viewer to really take advantage of the powerful logging and notification capabilities Watcher provides. Every detail of every transaction can now be easily and quickly inspected.


New Watcher

So many people asked for it, we added it! Watch Server Folder is a whole new Watcher type designed specifically to monitor your website/server for changes and alert you with a list of the new/changed/deleted items, leaving you to take whatever action necessary. When changes are detected a notification pops up - click it and the Notification History is displayed with the notification details pre-selected, so you can immediately see what's changed.


More Responsive & More Intelligent

The core Watcher engine has been re-worked to utilise macOS File System Events to the fullest, providing near-immediate reaction to file system changes, and enabling multiple simultaneous per-directory updates - perfect for near real-time syncing of large file hierarchies like a website

On-the-fly checking makes v3 even more resilient, fault-tolerant & trouble-free. As it traverses the directory hierarchy to be transferred, Watcher now automatically detects files/folders which are potentially still being modified - such as when a large file copied over a network or uploaded to a server - and will back off transferring until certain everything is complete.
