How do I setup my Site-babysitter?


How do I setup my WebStorm site-babysitter?


  • The Site-babysitter can be configured in WebStorm setup so that any specific user email address is BCC'd on every e-mail sent out of that WebStorm.
    • Note: The babysitter email address must be an actual user account in your Brightidea system.
  • Administrators can append a site babysitter in: Site Setup > Site > Components


  • Site babysitter is only available on the WebStorm level, not Enterprise, WebStorm Admin, Switchboard, or Pipeline.
  • ALL emails are cc'd to the site babysitter except:
    • Private Message Emails and Password recovery emails for users trying to login.
  • Please separate them by commas, ... example:,,
    • The administrator can setup as many as needed on all WebStorm(s).
  • Important Notes: 
    • Therefore, if 50 people are subscribed to an idea, and someone comments on it. the site baby-sitter will be BCC'ed on all 50 emails that go out to the subscribers.
    • One solution would be to have administrators set up a separate email account to receive babysitter emails so that personal email is not blasted by all the emails coming through.
    • The site baby-sitter gets cc'ed on all WebStorm level emails. 
    • The WebStorm baby-sitter does not get copied on any emails that are generated via the back-end Pipeline Management, including any action item alerts, private & submitter Q&A comments (including user tagging) and anything else that is not generated directly from the front-end WebStorm level.

    Separate multiple email addresses with a comma.

    When it says "The site baby-sitter gets cc'ed on EVERY email in the system." is it every email pertaining to that particular Challenge, or is every email Enterprise wide?

    Hello Lena,

    That would depend on where the baby sitter email is configured (Enterprise or WebStorm levels).
