Alerts are real-time notifications sent to your e-mail or connector when the setting parameters, which have been previously contemplated, are accomplished. These parameters are going to vary according to you brand, product or service, and they can be customized and adjusted to your specific needs.

How can we configure the alert? What kinds of alerts are there?

Although the alerts system of Séntisis allows you te create hundreds of different alerts by combining a lot of variables, there exist three main types: according to their volume, influence and author.

In order to access the alerts section, you should follow the next steps:

  • Go to the 'Alerts' icon, which is placed in the left side navigation bar - with a flame symbol.
  • Then, click on 'Create an Alert'.

After clicking on it, a list containing the three kinds of available alerts will be opened. Each of them has its own characteristics and it is possible to combine different criteria (sentiment, categories, etc.) and send them to one or some users.

When you create an alert, we suggest that you use its name in order to identify it, e.g. 'Influencer - More than 10K followers', since this information will appear in the content of the e-mail.


Alerts in accordance with volume

When more than 'X' mentions in the conversation are produced, you will receive a notification. In order to configure them, you should select the option 'By volume' in the alerts.

After entering this type of alert, you should complete the different sections, which will determine the information that will be included in the alert:

  1. Naming the alert. Remember that it is recommended that you use its name to identify it, e.g. 'More that 100 mentions per hour', since this information will appear in the sent e-mail.
  2. A brief description of the alert - optional.
  3. Deciding the number of mentions from which we want to receive the alert and the maximum time in which the mentions can be produced after receiving the alert - hours, minutes, days -, e.g. more than 50 mentions per minute.
  4. Selecting the source - All of them, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Media -, from which we want to receive the alert.

Furthermore, you should select the type of sentiment - positive or negative -, any of these categories - both the manual or the linguistic ones -, none of these categories - applicable in case of you want to exclude particular categories -, and select the brand - only in the product RACE - or trends - in the product Explore - according to which the alert should go off.
