How do I set up tile notifications?

Notifications can be configured so that when your business reaches a defined goal or target, an alert is triggered.

Best practice

Before starting, it’s a good idea to ensure that all the apps that you need to receive notifications for are connected to your tracker. To learn more about connecting an app, click here




Enabling notifications  

You can set up notifications that trigger when your business hits a target (daily, weekly, or monthly). For example, when you set financial goals for the month, you’ll be notified once your data has reached or exceeded the targets. Notifications are received as emails, direct alerts on your tracker, or via push notification to your mobile device.

  1. Log in to your 9Spokes dashboard

  2. Click the  icon in the top right-hand corner of your Tracker. The Notifications panel displays.
