Performance Alerts: can't create the specific alerts you need because you need additional fields to be added to your Event Forms?

 

For very specific Performance Alerts you may need to create new fields in your Event Form to calculate historical information to get the most from the performance alerts

For very specific Performance Alerts you may need to create new fields in your Event Form to calculate historical information to get the most from the performance alerts

When you create a new performance alert for a numeric field you can select to be notified of anything from % change to a new personal best. However, most of the alerts are based on the last value entered to the next value. It does not work over a set number of days or a specific time period.

If you want to know if there has been a specific change over a certain time period then you need to ask your application Builder to set this up as a historic calculation IN the actual event form for you so that you can set up the performance alert for that specific field.

On the Builder Site, the Builder can set up fields to include Historical Calculations (over a specific time period)

On the Builder Site, the Builder can set up fields to include Historical Calculations (over a specific time period)

For this example we are calculating the difference from Yesterday's weight to today's weight. If there is no value entered for yesterday, the calculation will not calculate and the equation will be left blank.

You may want to calculate the minimum weight over the last week and see how today's weight differs

You may want to calculate the minimum weight over the last week and see how today's weight differs

You can ask the Site Builder to add in field that calculate out differences over different time periods.

Other types of historical calculation used include setting a maximum, minimum and mean of a value over a specific time period (e.g. sleep over the last month)

Other types of historical calculation used include setting a maximum, minimum and mean of a value over a specific time period (e.g. sleep over the last month)

The example here shows min, max and mean hour slept over the past 1 month. Once you work with your Site Builder to create additional fields in your form, go back to the performance alerts page and set up the alert as outlined in the lesson called Performance Alerts: Setting up your alerts

Now go back to the application and set up the performance alerts you require based on these historical calculations

Now go back to the application and set up the performance alerts you require based on these historical calculations

 

Go to the Set Up for the Performance Alerts

Go to the Set Up for the Performance Alerts

 

Create a new Performance Alert based on the new fields in your form e.g. decrease in average hours slept

Create a new Performance Alert based on the new fields in your form e.g. decrease in average hours slept

Use the new historical fields to set meaningful alerts for your data.

Or even if average hours slept drops below 6 hours for the month

Or even if average hours slept drops below 6 hours for the month

Another example of how historical calculations can be useful is looking at minimum ranges (like sleep below an average of 6 hours per month).

ALWAYS test your performance alerts and the historical calculations on a demo athlete to ensure that you have set it up correctly

ALWAYS test your performance alerts and the historical calculations on a demo athlete to ensure that you have set it up correctly

Always go to into the event form and enter in a data for a test or demo athlete to ensure that the field is set up correctly in the form, and also that the performance alert is set up correctly. It may mean entering a months worth of fake date for one athlete, but it is better to get it right than miss the critical information that you need.
