New Datadog integration for Courier notification logs and metrics
The ability to unify all notification metrics and logs across channels and providers into an easy-to-use dashboard is a core advantage of Courier’s notification infrastructure. However, with product notifications so critical to the entire application experience, it’s important to connect that data back to central cloud observability platforms that look across the entire stack. This gives platform engineering teams a complete understanding of application health and lets them quickly troubleshoot even the most complex issues. Today, we’re incredibly excited to announce our first observability integration with Datadog. [Datadog](https://www.datadoghq.com/) is a tool for collecting metrics and other data from applications and viewing them in a centralized place. Datadog’s dashboards and monitoring tools build a more accurate picture of the health of your application and how it changes over time. Our integration with Datadog is easy to spin up when you use our “dashboard starter kit.” This consists of some pre-configured JSON to set up a simple dashboard in Datadog for your Courier data. Our Datadog integration is currently only available on Courier’s Business plan, much like our other production-focused features such as [template analytics](https://www.courier.com/docs/platform/logging/analytics/), [Okta integration for SSO](https://www.courier.com/docs/platform/workspaces/okta-integration/), and [advanced user preferences](https://www.courier.com/docs/platform/preferences/preference-center/introduction/).

Smarter customer engagement flows with Courier’s new Segment integration
Courier can now be a source of events in Segment, allowing you to make the most of your multi-channel customer data. Which communications were successfully delivered? Which ones were opened and read? On what channels? These types of events generated in Courier can now be used to create custom user journeys. This step completes the integration of the two services: previously, [Segment was available as a data destination in Courier](https://www.courier.com/blog/courier-segment-integration-product-notifications/). Now that the integration has come full circle, let’s have a look at how your organization can benefit from combining the two tools.

Why Are We Okay with Notification Interruptions from Slack?
The daily bombardment of alerts dinging, beeping, and ringing from all those applications we use is enough to drive someone completely crazy. Yet, for some inexplicable reason, we allow ourselves to be interrupted by Slack in a way we wouldn’t from any other platform.
