Allow multipe contacts in the "Notify" check config field
Currently only one individual or group can be entered in the notify field to receive both alerts and recovery notices. Users entered in the escalation field do not receive recovery notices.
This means we need a custom group for each subset of contacts that need to receive alerts and recoveries on a given check rather than adding multiple individuals or groups.
This also means that we cannot set both the new webhooks feature (say hipchat notices) and alerts to a group.
Can you please add the ability to attach multiple endpoints in the "Notify" check config field?
Hurray! Rigor just released a major update to our Notifications System. Improvements include:
- Multiple contacts in the “notify” check config field.
- Send alerts to both emails and webhooks.
- A new Datadog webhook
- Tracking when alerts are sent, and to whom
- Easier configuration of user and groups

Moving Anthony's comment here so we don't lose it: Thank you for the suggestion and votes. This is a great idea that will improve our alerting and we want to build this in the future.
We will post an update when this moves into the planning phase. Please continue to post any updates or additional ideas here.
