It would be really nice if all information from tasks/alerting/notifications could be centralized in the cluster overview. Currently most of it is "only" available in the WebUI or via the API. Having this information pushed via mail or even better a modern messenger would be really useful. Maybe even via push notification in the new app.

This is not supposed to replace proper monitoring but there is some information in the cluster which could be used directly from PVE to do something with it.
A notication center is somewhat missing here and might be even more relevant later on (Ressource overusage etc). Since PVE has HA capabilities this would even be a HA notification center too.

Having most of this information already somewhere in the cluster it can be used to:

- Filter based on task type/pool/vm id/host or name/regex
- Support multiple filter groups to be selected in further configuration
- Configuration one or multiple (cluster global) notification transport types (WebUI,App Push Notification,Mail,Telegram,RocketChat,Slack,Signal,...,good old SMS Gateways,Custom Scripting with pve provided variables containing the Filter type, state and message)
- Select where to send the notifications to. One or multiple targets (e.g. Mail and Telegram)
- Define notification hours, (when to notify and when not)
- Disable/Enable Notification for specific filter type or custom created filter groups.
- Configurate maintenance windows for any of the created filter
- Provide preconfigured (fixed) notificaiton templates
- Allow adding custom notification message templates

There are surely some more things to concider and add to this feature request but for the moment that should be enough to get started.

Thanks!
