Push notifications for Smart Detection alerts
The email is usually a low priority tool. When there is a critical problem, I notice it too late (when I take the cell to check the email). I usually recive thousands of emails every day, however, push notifications are much less common and more visible.
While there’s no update to the status of this suggestion, you may find an interim solution for setting up alerts on the Smart Detection preview rules described in this article:
Hope this helps.

With the suggestion that Harel posted and the completion of the following ask I think we'd be good for awhile. Going in and turning off a bunch of alerts and/or setting a special email is just a lot of time wasting.

is there a good place to keep up with this issue?
I feel like this should have already been part of such a rich metric environment. It's tough on small departments to have sold the higher-ups on Application Insights and now I have to sell them on having to develop more internal applications just to glean the information.
Push notification for Smart Detection alerts work was pushed forward due to other higher propriety work items, the status remains planned.

Smart alerts greatly helps our team with monitoring issues with our services in Production. And instead of setting up manual alerts, smart alerts already covers the most common things we are looking out for. So we really find great value in it. The only issue we have right now is that our team depends on Smart Alerts to handle issues with our production services before a customer reports a live site issue. For this, we need a way to send these Smart alerts into an oncall engineering system like ICM or OSP (osp.office.net) so that our oncall engineers can get paged. Currently we are only able to do this for failure anomalies and nothing else. It will be of tremendous value if your team can prioritize implementing webhook support for the rest of the smart detection alerts too.

Thanks for posting this ask. We're planning to add Webhook support to Smart Detections in the near future, similar to Webhooks for Azure alerts.
Please let us know if this will address this ask or if you had something else in mind.
Once Webhooks for Smart Detections are available we'll update this User Voice.
Great idea !!
Easy and useful
Please Bill Gates, fix it. Thanks.
