How to Add Your Logo to Your Alerts
- To add an Alert Box, press the plus sign (+) in the Sources section of Streamlabs Desktop.
- Now, select Alert Box from the pop-up menu.
- After you are done adding the source, viewers will see our default alert appear on the screen when you get a new subscriber, bit, follow, host, etc.
The next section will explain how to change from the default alert to a custom alert (like the one you created using Streamlabs Logo Maker)
Create Custom Alerts
You can manually customize your alerts by navigating to the Streamlabs dashboard and clicking on Alert Box on the left-hand side.
This page is your command center when it comes to editing your alerts. From here, you can choose to edit your General Settings, which will affect every single alert type, and/or you can choose to further customize specific alert types.
Depending on the platform you choose, your alert types will differ. For example, in the picture below I’m logged into Twitch, and therefore have options to customize my alerts for Follows, Subscriptions, Hosts, Bits, etc. Choose to edit your General Settings or specific alert types here.
General Settings apply to every alert type. You can edit the alert delay, mod approvals, profanity filters, add custom bad words, etc.
Customize Specific Alert Types
To customize an alert, click on the specific event type you wish to edit. In the example pictured below, we are editing alerts for new Twitch followers.
On this page, you can customize the layout of the alert, the image or gif that’s played, sound, font, animation, duration, etc. Upload your logo so that it will appear when someone triggers an alert. Repeat for as many alert types as your heart desires.
That’s it! You’ve customized your on-screen alerts, and you’re ready to show them off to your viewers.
