Users can build alerts based on given cells within a visual. You will then receive alerts based on the triggers you've defined. For instance, you may set an alert to be triggered if the costs for a given product increase. Depending on your requirements, you can build a basic alert, or an advanced alert. Alerts can be configured in Discover and Present.
Users can build two types of alert:
- Basic: a basic alert lets you know when the given data point either increases, decreases, or stays the same. You can set a basic schedule for the alert job, and determine whether it should be distributed via the alerts feed or via email. You can also trigger the alert schedule to run when the underlying data model is reprocessed.
- Advanced: configure an advanced alert to set up an advanced schedule, a triggered launch, and advanced distribution.
