Types of alerts

Threshold Alert
A threshold alert lets you set specific criteria for when you want to be notified. By setting specific criteria for when you want to be notified, you can ensure that you’re always in the loop when significant changes occur. For example, you might set a threshold alert to trigger when market share drops below 7% or when the market shrank by more than 10%. It’s about keeping you in the loop when significant changes occur. 

Scheduled Alert
On the other hand, a Scheduled Alert is more like a regular check-in. You set it to provide updates at specific times, such as every first day of the month. It’s your way of staying informed about your data trends on a regular schedule, no matter how busy you are.


Staying Proactive with Alerts

Alerts are more than just notifications; they are powerful tools that empower you to stay proactive, informed, and ahead of the curve. They provide you with immediate insights into significant changes in your data landscape, ensuring you’re the first to know and react.

With alerts, you’re not just passively receiving information. Instead, you’re actively harnessing the power of real-time data to make informed decisions promptly. They transform you from being a mere observer to an active participant in your data narrative.

Whether it’s staying on top of significant metric changes with Threshold Alerts or maintaining regular data check-ins with Scheduled Alerts, these tools place the power of proactivity in your hands.
