Create Alerts (Advanced Analytics)

  • Updated

Alerts in Advanced Analytics allow you to monitor important changes in your DAM system and take appropriate action. You can set up alerts based on specific metrics, determine thresholds, specify how often to check the data and choose who receives notification emails.

These alerts are useful for notifying key stakeholders about certain events, like a specific number of downloads on your platform, sudden decreases in user logins, or unsuccessful searches.

Keep in mind that there are ongoing improvements to the dashboards that might impact your alerts. Check the Bynder Release Notes for any updates or enhancements to Advanced Analytics.
