Set Alerts off Data Visualization Card (not from Summary Number)

Options

Hello - does anyone know how I can set an alert (preferably multiple independent alerts) off a data visualization card, that isn't running off a summary number? Domo help articles say that there are certain chart types that allow this but I am unable to find which ones. I have a table card that shows display campaign metrics such as CTR and Spend, and I'd like to set multiple alerts off this card to go to a campaign manager when for example the CTR for a certain campaign goes below 0.06%. Thank you 😊

    Hey Kim - table cards are the ones where you CAN'T alert off of the data values. Summary number is the only way to get your alert to fire.

    I work around this by alerting on a bar chart, for instance, or on the dataset itself. Sometimes I build dataset views purely to aggregate the data I need to make my dataset alert straight forward. You can control what the text of the alert says - so if you go that route, you could always include a hyperlink to the table card.
