In Chartio, an alert is essentially a single value chart with a threshold. Chartio will run your query at the scheduled interval, and if the value returned meets the threshold you’ve specified, we’ll send an email with a customized message.

You can send an alert to anyone, whether they’re a Chartio user or not. You can also schedule alerts for non-numeric values like text or dates.

To view and manage your alerts, click the “…” menu in the top navigation bar and select Alerts.
