    4. Note, you can also change the time of day for scheduled runs and the email being sent to you in the admin page. This applies to all analyses and users. We recommend setting scheduled run to be 3 hours before the email delivery time to ensure all analysis have finishes running before emails are sent for the given day.
  3. Set Conditions to receive notifications: You have the option to set specific conditions for when to receive email notifications about your analyses. Click on Set Conditions and then select one of the three threshold type options to define your condition to you liking:
    The options and settings are as follows:

    Absolute Value

    The Notification will be triggered if the value of the metric is above or below the defined thresholds for the current period. (Note that this option does not compare the change in value vs. the previous period.)

    Absolute Change

    The Alert will be triggered if the value of the metric changes in the current time period vs. the previous time period increases or decreases more than the defined thresholds.

    The metric is automatically compared to the previous time period defined by your overall analysis.
