our account manager signed me up when this became available- so far no actual impact since no system issues have affected us (a good thing!) but it sure does make me breathe easier to know that i'll get an alert if something is happening.

So glad to hear you're all signed up!
Also glad to hear no system issues have effected you - but if it happens, it's great to have a notification feature in place to give you a heads up.
