Ability to subscribe users or groups to an alert

Currently a user can follow an alert but there is no way to create an alert and push it to a user or group of users.  For example I have created alerts based on data latency and I want business owners to be able to get the alert and the only I can do that is ask them to follow versus push it to them.

Please give me a thumbs up or mark as solution if this helped thanks! @anotherdatageek

  • This would be beneficial for us. We have to notify them now and let them know that an alert is available.  

  • Thank you for your suggestion.  This has been submitted to our engineering team through ticket # DOMO-37778

  • @MitchyMitch8can you take a look at this please?  

  • @product_John, any word on whether this will make it onto the enhancement list for an upcoming release?  This would be a very popular enhancement for my organization.

     

    Thanks!

  • @ckatzman - going to reassign this to a new PM that has taken over responsibility for this area.

     

    @mdelorey can you please take a look at this request.

  • @ckatzman we are working on some of these features right now, and i have some questions for you about the specific implementation we're considering. would you be available to have a call to talk through some of your use cases and our proposed solutions?

  • @mdelorey  Sure, happy to help.  If you'd like to setup a call for Tues Dec 22, available most of the day.  Please also include @Shevy.  You can probably find both of our email addresses in our Dojo profiles (or I can forward appt request if you only find mine).  Otherwise, please contact Brody Barker (Domo Acct Mgr) for contact information so I don't have to post publicly.  Smiley Surprised

     

    If another day/date works better, please reach out and let's coordinate directly via email or phone.

  • Currently there is a way of subscribing myself to alerts, but not a way of subscribing others. Users under a specific user role (perhaps privileged) may be able to assign groups or individuals to receive alerts . One example is if I want my team to see cards I built to detect data errors, I could create the alert and point it towards the group I made under Admin Settings.

  • @Dan love this idea! We are actually working on a way to do this using Buzz. Stay tuned on this one!

  • Current functionality allows a user to select "notify me" on alerts they (or others) have created. 

     

    It would be useful if you could assign alerts to others in your team. For example, if I create an alert, I would like for it to notify me as well as everyone on my team. Rather than having each of my team members indiviudally sign in and select "notify me", it might be easier if I can select who all should be notified when the alert is triggered. 

     

    If notifying someone else when an alert is triggered is not supportable, another idea would be to "suggest an alert". This is to suggest an alert to other users, where they will get an email in their inbox showing that I have recommended/suggested that they get notified when a particular alert is triggered. Then they are still able to log in and select "notify me" (current functionality), but there is a mechnism for them to know that they should also be keeping track of a particular alert. 

     

    Thanks in advance!

    @nonieg: thanks for submitting this idea! i'm the product manager for alerts at domo. alert sharing is something that is high up on our priority list. can i reach out to you to include you in beta/usability tests for this feature?

     

    i'm also curious if you feel like this idea is different than this idea. if so, can you clarify how? if not, we'll close this one as a duplicate and request that you upvote the other idea.

  • @mdelorey this is the same idea as the other idea you have linked. We can mark this as a duplicate. 

     

    Great! Glad to hear this is high priority. I would love to be able to beta this feature. Let me know what I have to do to get on the list. 

     

    Thanks!

    thanks, @nonieg. you're officially on the list of interested users for testing this feature ? i'll be in touch.

  • Can't wait to have this function. I am not saying the executive is IT dumb. As an Domo admin, I just need a way to push alerts to them.

  • Hey @mdelorey, I'd be interested in this as well. I see from the other thread that this hasn't gotten much traction recently - can I be included in the test as well?

    @Yehonatan: DM me your info (name, company, email), and I will do what I can to get you into the test. We've already conducted a couple rounds of usability testing. The feature is under active development, and we'll to enter beta soon.

     

    Make sure to upvote the other thread so we can capture your interest there as well.

  • Done and done. 

     

    Thanks!

  • This feature has been approved and is currently in development.

  • Are there any updates on this enhancement?  This would be super beneficial across the board to have the ability to assign alerts to other users.

     

    Thanks!

  • @btm did this feature go live last week? If not what is the ETA?
    Thanks!
