Add an Alert to a KPI

You can set up email alerts to get notified when a KPI value on the KPI dashboard reaches a particular threshold.

You cannot add alerts to insights.

To add alerts to KPIs:

  1. On the project toolbar, click KPIs.
  2. Select your KPI dashboard from the list of KPI dashboards. 

  3. Hover your mouse over the KPI to which you want to add an alert.

  4. Configure the alert parameters and click Set alert.

Alerts are always set in accordance with the current value of the date filter. For example, if the date filter is set to This month, the alert is set to Current month.

If the KPI value is cumulative, you must reconfigure the alert every time it reaches the threshold. For example, you are notified when the sales amount reaches 1000. If you want to get another alert when the sales amount reaches 1500, set the KPI alert 1500.

Changing the alert sender

The KPI dashboard sends you an email whenever it loads and the KPI reaches the alert parameter value. The email is sent from GoodData Alert (

White-labeled domain administrators can specify the sender to be domain specific. For details, see Customize the White-Labeled Domain.
