With Alerts, you can automatically and proactively monitor your data and get notified of any emerging trends. If an Alert is triggered, it may indicate that you need to adjust your strategy or add an Annotation to note significant activity. Alerts can also help you and your team better understand the correlation between the work you're doing and the results you're seeing in the data.
How to access Alerts
Navigate to Notifications > Alerts to access Alerts. Click + New Alert to create a new Alert.
How to use Alerts
For example, selecting Last 7 Days as a Date Range will compare the last 7 days performance to the previous week's performance to determine when the Alert should be triggered. The Date Range selection works in conjunction with the Condition and Qualifier to monitor the data and trigger a notification.
Pro Tip: You can customize the email address that Alerts are sent from with the white-label add-on. Learn more here.
