Google is also working to bring the new alerts widget to Analytics dashboard. "This new widget gives you a view on the number of automatic and/or custom alerts that you had over the date range selected. If you click on the widget, it will lead you to the intelligence events report, simplifying your workflow," posted Hong.

"This widget will automatically be included in all your newly created dashboards if you select the "starter dashboard" option."

In addition, if you have already created a customized dashboard and would like to add this new feature, you'll be able to find the alert widget under the TIMELINE visualization.

Under the "Add a metric" drop down menu, you'll be able to choose "All Alerts," "Automatic Alerts," or "Custom Alerts."
