I was actually going to post this idea. I think is absolutely necessary to have this alerting capability as it will give the business the capacity to react in real time to the specific situations that we follow in each indicator!
We have been approaching this as a concept called ‘dynamic data sources’. This will allow you to create a user input control, say a drop down with geographies, and put a variable in the data source definition related to geographies.
The result would be that as a user changes the input control to, say Canada, the data source is filtered to provide data for Canada.
In the background, an instance of the data source would be created with that value from the drop down populating the variable in the data source query.
If the instance already exists, the dashboard will leverage that like any other data source. If the instance does not already exist, it would be created.
We have been testing this kind of thing for a while and are working on productizing it.
