Then set a filter for the value you want to primary watch (e.g. helpdesk tickets created this month). And finally set the comparison filter (e.g. helpdesk tickets created last month). The module shows the number of items in the primary filter and trend symbol, whether it is higher or lower than the comparison filter.

Alerts for saved filters - added operators (=, =<, >=, >, <)

Alerts for saved filters are extended from only watching if the results are more than, to watch also other options such as "less than", "equal to", "equals or more", and "equals or less". This will, for example, allow you to create an alert if a filter is empty (= 0), i. e. employee is waiting for work.
