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
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)
You may want to calculate the minimum weight over the last week and see how today's weight differs
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)
Now go back to the application and set up the performance alerts you require based on these historical calculations
Create a new Performance Alert based on the new fields in your form e.g. decrease in average hours slept
Or even if average hours slept drops below 6 hours for the month
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.
