Generic Metric Newsflashes help you celebrate important milestones within your company, for Metrics that don't necessarily relate to one Player or Team. For example, you may want a Newsflash to trigger when your website traffic increases by 10% compared to last month, or when you hire your 500th team member.

Configuring a Generic Metric Newsflash

  1. In the Configure tab, click Metric Newsflashes under Newsflashes in the left nav.  Alternatively, click the Newsflashes tile and then Metric Newsflashes tile.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Enter a name for your Newsflash. This name will appear throughout the app (TV, web, and mobile) when the Newsflash is triggered.
  4. Select the Metric that will trigger the Newsflash. You should select a Metric that contains Generic Identifier values.
  5. Select "Generic Identifier" as your Value Type, since you want to trigger this Newsflash when one or more Generic values meet your trigger criteria, i.e., not User or Team values.
  6. Set your Trigger Criteria to specify when the Newsflash should be triggered.
  7. Enter a default message. This will appear throughout the app (TV, web, and mobile), when the Newsflash is triggered.
  8. Decide who you want to give Repost permissions to: only admins or all players and watchers. This determines who is allowed to repost a Newsflash that has fired.
  9. Select the Generic Identifiers that will cause this Newsflash to be triggered. 
  10. Optionally, select Watchers. The people selected here will be able to view triggered Newsflashes in their Activity tab in the web and mobile apps.
  11. Click Save.
