How to setup alerts in Streamlabs?

2 mins read

Streamlabs is a popular streaming platform that allows users to set up and customize various aspects of their stream, including alerts.

Here's an overview of how to set up alerts with Streamlabs:

Log in to the Streamlabs Dashboard and connect with your Account (Twitch, YouTube, Facebook..) example: if you are streaming on Twitch use your Twitch credentials.

Navigate to the "Alerts" tab on the sidebar. 

Before creating alerts click on the Manage Themes button and manage your widget themes

If you are using Streamlabs Desktop, you can associate Widget Themes with Scene Collections so when you change Scene Collection in your editor, your Widget Theme automatically changes with it. If you are using another streaming software you can use Widget Themes the way Alert Profiles have always worked. A Widget Theme can hold multiple widget settings.

Before creating alerts please check the default settings and adjust as needed

 Now you can edit alerts:

- Layout

- Alert Animation

- Message Template

- Text Animation

- Upload Image/Video/Gif or use images from the gallery

- Sound

- Alert duration and text delay

- You can customize alerts as you like and play with the settings until you find the best one that suits your style.

Notice that you will need to upload and adjust each alert individually and create variations if needed

You can pick the font you like ( you can check here Google fonts and pick the name of the font in the settings tab, and choose the Font size, Font weight text color, and text highlight color.
After all this hard work you are ready to set up or test your alerts.
Click the Launch green button and it will open the Green window for you after it opens you can click on the bottom buttons to test each alert you have enabled and edited.
If you are happy with everything it’s time to add an alert box URL in your streaming program, let’s say it’s **[OBS Studio](**
You can also use SLOBS or OBS. Live it’s almost the same setup in all of them.

Click on +, then click Browser and name it something like, “Stream Alerts/ Alert Box/ My super cool alerts”.

Now paste the URL that you got from your alert app into the URL section.

Adjust the Width, Height and make sure that you check, Shutdown source when not visible because you will still hear your alert notification sounds when you hide your alert browser source.

Click OK, and now you will have your alerts added to OBS the same settings are also for Streamlabs Desktop

You can move and resize the browser source around to place it wherever you want the alerts to show up on your stream.

If you want to edit the alert just repeat all steps from the start
