Alerts within DDX Bricks

Hi,

I want to make sure I can accomplish this before actually spending the time to create the brick.
I have an app with about 7-8 pages. I want to create a ddx brick on the main landing page that will display important information about certain order numbers.

The part that I'm not sure is possible is can I have the brick send an alert when a new Order# is displayed on the brick?

I am filtering the dataset used to power the DDX brick in an etl to only pull the last 14 days. From there I am displaying whatever Order# are in that dataset on the ddx brick. Once the 14 days have past the Order# are no longer in the dataset and removed from the brick.

Thank you

    I don't believe bricks have alerts but I could be mistaken.

    Whats the advantage of using a brick vs. a card here? Couldn't you just filter a card to the last 14 days?

    I don't do many alerts, but you can trigger alerts on datasets, cards, or conditions in a dataflow.

    Alert on a dataset: define a condition for the alert such as when a value exceeds a threshold.

    Alert on a card, based on the same dataset you use for the brick. Or branch off in the dataflow.

    Alert on the dataflow, such as a condition such as when it fails, runs successfully, or completes a certain number of rows.

    I often have ETLs output more than one dataset. Just because you use a flow to push a dataset for a brick, doesn't mean the same dataflow can't path off to some other event / process / result to create your trigger. It may even be a different ETL that works with the same data your brick is using.

    Can you make an ETL and dataset that feeds the brick trigger the alert?

    Are you talking about when the dataset updates have an alert on the dataset itself?
