Custom Alerts

Hi there,

Love Clicky btw.

I have a small question.
There is in the spy a default alert wich I can switch on and off. This is the new visitor.

Now I've created a new alert. This alert should go off whenever the goal is reached.
But this doesn't work.

In the spy there is no extra alert wich I can switch on or off.
And the alert never sounds. Even when I see a goal is reached.

In Spy the only alert you can toggle "live" is the new visitor alert. Other alerts must be managed on the alerts page itself. But if you have alerts setup they should trigger within Spy as well.

Thank you for your answer.
But the alert is not triggert. Tried some other settings... None of them work with goals.

Just tried it with different settings. The alert is triggert. But only to send it to my Ipad as a push notification.
I just want it to give a sound notification in my webbrowser.... but that doesn't work...

Still no go.
I did setup another goal. A destinationpage goal.
And I did setup a alert for that goal.
Works like a charm.

But when I do the same for my dynamic goal (checkout_success.php with the revenue in it) the alert does not sound...

Ah, yes I don't think dynamic goals trigger alerts in Spy, if I recall. There was some challenge to making that work.

O no... ;(
Love the alerts.. but too bad they don't work with custom goals.

I am having same issue. would be nice to get custom alerts working in Spy. I didn't receive email alert nor the notification bell.

Hi, this thread is almost 4 years old. Alerts work with dynamic goals now.

Email alerts work with dynamic goals?
