Custom Alerts

In addition to Automatic Insights Alerts, you can also choose to create a Custom Alert for your Insights and Funnels reports. Custom Alerts allow you to decide what report conditions result in an alert. Alerts send as an email, and can be sent to multiple users.

This feature is currently only available on the following paid plans:

  • Enterprise
  • Business
  • MTU Enterprise
  • MTU Growth

To create a custom alert in an Insights or Funnels report, click the bell icon that says Enable alerts and select Create Custom Alert.

To click the bell icon, you first need to save your report.

Custom Alerts in Insights

Custom alerts in Insights alert you when a specified event is performed above or below a specified number.

Enter a name for your alert and select an event to track. Select above or below and the value you want as the threshold.

Choose the frequency that you would like to receive these alerts, either hourly, daily, or weekly.

Enter the recipient emails that you would like to receive this alert. You can enter any email here, not just internal users.

Line Charts

In line chart reports, you can select relative thresholds.

Choose between the specific value (this is the same as other chart types), the previous period’s value by the percentage, or the previous period’s value by. Then, enter the value or percentage.

View & Manage Custom Alerts

Custom alerts do not appear under the alert bell on your reports like automated alerts do. You can view and manage all alerts under your account settings.

Click on your initials in the top right of Mixpanel and select Profile & Preferences under "ACCOUNT SETTINGS".
