Audio notifications on conditional formatting/threshold reach

When using conditional formatting in addition to changing colours, icons etc I would like to be able to play back an audio notification. Perhaps this can also work when a value reaches a certain threshold. This is useful in situations where a dashboard is being displayed on a TV screen on (near) real-time data.

    Great addition to the concept of alerting. Looking into it. Thanks, Martijn.

    Any update on this feature or is any work around available to play an audio sound when a target is met?

    Hi Tanmay

    I know some Klipfolio customers have used the HTML template component to create an audio sound based on a formula result. There are a few issues you can run into though

    - You must be comfortable creating JS in the component

    - You must have a formula with a result that is changing due to a data source refresh, to trigger the comparison formula to calculate

    - Your JS must run independently from the typical page/dashboard refresh, so you'll need to assume the user is viewing the dashboard, the JS is running on a loop and then you can trigger the audio sound when the formula results meet your condition

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    How do you trigger code when the data source is refreshed or a formula result has changed?

    Thank

    Hi Aviv,

    Formulas will automatically be recalculated when new data is returned in the data source. If you are not seeing this behaviour, it could be due to the complexity of your formulas or if you are using models, the model could be having an issue. You can reach out to the support team to have them investigate your specific situation. 

    Thanks
