'Smart' auto alerts to flag sudden changes in site performance

A module that the admin can use - perhaps by selecting checkboxes - to enable auto alerts which self configure based on std variance or std deviation to identify big changes on top engagement/performance metrics (Error page volumes/ entry page % and or bounce rate by page/traffic channel % entry and or bounce rate/conversion etc.)

Obviously admin can go through and configure all this manually - but it would be better if there was a mechanism by which this could be set to auto configure and or learn in the first instance and then be tweaked as necessary - perhaps on the basis of a sensitivity meter that the admin could set for standard deviation or similar for each group of metrics.

Can't you already do this using standard alerts? You can create custom metrics for the various "engagement/performance" metrics you listed.

Hi Jon,

 

Yes you can manually configure everything (as I alluded to in the second paragraph of my original post)

 

However, this is a labor intensive process that everyone has to undertake - hence configurable auto alert functionality, across the most obvious/important metrics, could save everyone a considerable amount of time.
