I gave that a go and the weekend data is still triggering an alert (the preview states 8 times over the last 30 days). Seems like there is no way to filter out the weekends from the alert trigger. I'll continue trying some other things as time permits. Seems like this should be a simple task...can't believe that this is not more intuitive. Thanks for your input.

I changed the trigger metric to pageviews (< 500) which correctly identified 9 days (weekend days) where the alert would get triggered. However, when I added the day of the week filter (for Monday), the preview stated that the alert would get triggered 25 times over 30 days. It looks like the day of the week dimension filter works differently than expected. Really bizarre.....setting up a simple alert shouldn't be this difficult.

I created a segment that filters out the weekend days. Still didn't work....seems like there is no linkage between the metrics trigger and the additional dimension/segments filters. Strange....the only thing that adjusted the alert getting triggered in the preview was adjusting the metrics trigger number (either up or down). Adding dimensions/segment filters (like day of the week) didn't seem to result in what you would expect. It actually added more days where the alert trigger would fire.

I created another segment based on hits for the targeted pages but the preview still says the alert would fire every day (30 times over the last 30 days). When I remove the day filters then the preview says it would fire on 9 days out of the last 30 which is correct since there were 9 weekend days where daily visits were below 100. However, I'd rather just have the alert based on weekdays so I wouldn't be getting alerts sent to me every week because of expected lower Saturday and Sunday traffic.

It was set up to look for certain pages in the report suite (page...contains...). The metric selected to show was visits. Is that the problem?Thanks for the help.

I added the 'or' statement so I could have a filter for each weekday (partial screenshot below). The counter in the top corner says that the alert would have been triggered 30 times in the last 30 days. When I looked at the actual daily visits the only days where the the visits were less than 100 were on the weekends...so it really shouldn't have been triggered at all over that last 30 days. Not sure why this would be.

I've been trying to set up a basic traffic alert using the Alert Builder. I want to check daily visits to see if they drop below a certain threshold, I only want to look at Mon-Fri since the traffic normally drops to very low levels on the weekend. I'm having difficulty getting the filter to work so that it ignores the weekend traffic. Has anyone had issues with this?Thanks !
