Then set up a rule.
For example, you want to be alerted when your cost per click yesterday was greater than 0.5€.
You can add more conditions.
For example, if your campaign yesterday spent more than 10€ and there is a high cost per click (the condition you set previously), you can be alerted of this.
If you select “Match All” then all conditions listed here need to be satisfied in order for you to receive an alert.
If you select “Any Match” then only one of the listed conditions needs to be satisfied in order for you to receive an alert.
Next you can select your preferred method of notification; via Slack or email.
Under “Select Frequency” you can choose how often you would like Hunch to sweep through date and check if any conditions have been triggered.
Finally, give your alert a name that you can easily recall.
By selecting “metrics” you can compare 2 values.
See the example below. If your cost per click is greater (x1) than your cost per click the previous day, you will receive an alert.
By selecting “Time” you can set a time or date as a condition.
See the example below. After 8pm (UTC+1 time zone) everyday you will receive an alert if your spend is greater than 100€.
By selecting ’Link” you can check whether the url you used when you created your campaign is live or broken.
