What do I need to know about Notifications?

How do I use Notifications?

Notifications doesn’t require any setup on your part, it proactively analyzes data that’s important to you and provides alerts when it detects trends that seem out of the ordinary. We automatically send anomalies for reports on your dashboard. So, if you would like to start receiving anomalies for a specific report simply add it to your dashboard. We also alert you on any saved report you have viewed at least twice in the last 60 days.

Notifications can be accessed from the bell icon in the upper right hand corner of the UI. Clicking on an anomaly from the bell will take you to the relevant report where there will be a bubble highlighting the relevant data.
