Notifications Widget

Timeline Notifications are a quick and easy way to watch for notable changes related to your sites traffic. Notifications are both overlaid on the Timeline widget and listed in the dedicated Notifications widget.

The Notifications widget itself displays your most recent Notifications in descending order. These Notifications can include:

  • Traffic Alerts
  • RSS items
  • Manually added Milestones
Traffic Alerts

Traffic Alerts can be configured by clicking on the cog icon in the top right of the Notifications widget. A detailed guide on how to setup Traffic Alerts is available here.

RSS Items

The Notifications widget also shows the most recent RSS items that have come in from any of the feeds configured. It's possible to add an RSS feed by clicking on the cog icon on the top right of the Timeline widget. More detailed instructions on how to setup RSS feeds and how they work is available here.

Manually Add Milestones

It is possible to manually add a point on the Dashboard Timeline by simply scrolling over the Timeline and clicking to add a point. These manually added Milestones then also appear in the Notifications widget. These milestones are a great way to record information on your traffic Timeline.
