Working with e-mail alerts

Set up an alert to be notified by e-mail when a trend reaches a specified threshold. For example, you may want to be notified when the share of a specific browser reaches 40% of all browsers.

When the threshold is reached, SiteCatalyst NetAverages sends you an e-mail and lets the alert expire. The e-mail is sent to the address you use to log in to Adobe.com. Click the links in the alert e-mail for more information.
