Feeds allow you to stay updated on the metrics you are tracking and get alerts (in real-time, for live datasets) whenever there is a change (drop or spike) in your metric. The metrics can be viewed on the Feed page.

From v4.2, Feed is also available for live datasets.
From v4.3, calculated columns and marketshare aggregation can be used for Feed creation.

Alerts on the detection of anomalies

Once a metric has been configured to track, Tellius checks for anomalies every time a Business View is refreshed. When an anomaly is detected in the metric being tracked, Tellius alerts the users concerned in the following ways:

  1. In-app alert: A panel will be created on the Feed page with the following details. The Feed generated is fully dynamic with which you can interact to get detailed insights into the "what" and "why" of the change.

  • Details of the metric being tracked (name of the Feed, frequency of monitoring)
  • The change detected (drop/spike in the value)
  • Timestamp when the anomaly occurred
  • A line chart for the tracked metric.
  • The Details button will redirect you to the associated Insight where you can get additional details on what drove the change.

  1. Email alert: An email will be sent to the creator and subscribers of the Feed. The email contains the details of the anomaly, links to the generated Feed and associated object. The following is a sample email:

Track a new metric

From v4.3, users can track and get notified of anomalies in calculated columns.
