About this task

Thresholds can be set for any indicator in combination with a time series and elements of a breakdown. When a threshold is triggered the instance generates an email notification. This message is associated with the indicator and the message is directly available via the detailed scorecard.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Performance Analytics > Scorecards.
  2. Select a scorecard.
  3. (Optional) Select a breakdown and breakdown element if you want to add a threshold to a subset of the data.
    You can also select a 2nd-level breakdown and element.
  4. (Optional) Select a time series if the threshold should apply only to a specific aggregation of the data.
  5. Click the threshold icon (Threshold icon).
  6. Select the condition that triggers the threshold notification, such as when the score reaches an all-time high, or when the score falls lower than a specific value.
  7. Click Save.
