Step 6: Set Alerts

Watch a video:


Instructions:
To get to 'Set Alerts' > go to 'Setup' for a company > then 'Step 6'.

In this step, you can set alert thresholds for some KPIs. An alert threshold is not a ‘business as usual’ target, rather this represents a critical level which may indicate that the business is experiencing financial stress.

For example, an alert may occur when Accounts Receivable days exceed a specific result; or when the cash held by the business drops below a certain amount.

Each alert can either be turned ‘on’ or ‘off’. For alerts which are turned on, you can specify an alert threshold.

When an alert is triggered a notification appears within the Fathom analysis tools and reports.
Alerts are visible in the KPI Analysis tools and in the Alerts dashboard.
