How to create a new alert via the Alerts menu

You can set alerts and notifications on 2 levels. In the video below, we show you how to set both alerts via the alert menu.

 

Alerts can be set on KPI level and Product level:

  • KPI level alertreceive an alert when the specified condition for the selected KPI is met. You use this alert when you want to receive a notification when i.e. a retailer, brand, or other such 'aggregation level' hits a certain threshold.
    I.e., show the retailers for which the availability rate drops below 80%.
  • Product level alertreceive an alert when the specified condition for at least 1 individual brand is met. You use this alert type when you want to be notified when an individual product (or multiple products) hit a certain threshold.
