Metric Newsflashes can be made for users, teams or generic identifiers. This article covers users, but this video will cover all.

To add a User 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 Metric Newsflash. Note that this will be displayed to users in TV Channels and in the Activity tab.

  4. Select the Metric on which this Newsflash will be based.  For example, you might select your "Monthly Revenue" Metric to recognize users for new revenue.

  5. For Value Type, select User.
