    Unanswered: Customize emails for Job Notifications. Help Plz!

    Using SQL Server Agent, I set up notification to send to my phone when an automated job fails in my database. However, its sends a message about 8 pages long giving me useless detail. All I want to know if a job failed. How do you customize that message sent? All I would like is a message saying "A job has failed".

    Add a step that gets executed on failure, and from there send an email On Success of that step.
    "The data in a record depends on the Key to the record, the Whole Key, and
    nothing but the Key, so help me Codd."

    Yea, I had thought of that, but I have 30+ jobs and I didn't want to manually add a new step for every single one. I guess this may be my only option however. If you have any other ways, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for the help.
