Agility can email you and your colleagues with updates on the results from your monitoring topics as and when the results are generated. This is especially useful if you need to be made aware of mentions immediately, for example if you have an event or product launch going on, or need to stay on top of a fast moving story.

To create a Coverage Alert, first make sure that you have a saved topic that will generate some results. Then navigate to 'Coverage Alerts' and 'New Coverage Alert' within Monitoring.

The default components for a Coverage Alert are the header image, date and title, highlighted below. Each of these is customisable by clicking the pencil icon in the top right of each component, and you can also add a text component to the alert email.

As you can see in the screenshot above, you also have fields to give your alert a name for you to be able to identify within your account in future and, most importantly, to specify the topic for the coverage alert. This is the topic where the results contained in your alert will come from. Any results that the topic's terms generate will be contained in your topic coverage alert.

Once you have decided upon the appearance of your alert and the topic, you can specify the delivery details such as the email subject line, who the email is coming from and who it is going to. You can also select whether you would like alerts to continue indefinitely or if you'd like them to be sent only within a specified time period.

Once you're happy with how your alert is set up, click 'Save as Draft' and then 'Activate' when you are ready.
