Amazon QuickSight can now notify users of changes to important metrics in their dashboards with threshold-based alerts. Readers and authors can set up personalized rules on key metrics in their dashboards and be automatically notified via email when data crosses the defined thresholds, highlighting important changes in their business. For instance, a manager might want to track the sales of their business and know when weekly sales drop below $100,000. To set up an alert, users can go to any QuickSight dashboard and click on a KPI or gauge visual and then use the ‘alert’ icon in order to configure the alert. Threshold alerts are billed per metric processed (which means each time an alert rule is checked) at tiered rates starting at $0.50 per 1000 metrics processed. See details on alerts pricing.

Amazon QuickSight threshold alerts are now available in Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition in all supported regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), and US West (GovCloud).
