I'm getting too many notifications - what can I do?

Reducing the number of notifications you receive

There are a number of ways to reduce the number of change notifications you receive. 

  • Select the Ignore small changes option 
  • Change how frequently the track is checked
  • Track just a section of the page

We'll go through each of these in turn

Ignore small changes

If you're receiving notifications about small "noisy" changes - that you don't really care about - like this:

Filter count
then you might want to edit your track and check Yes in the option to ignore small changes:

It's not infallible - but it should help. More on what this option ignores.

Change how frequently the track is checked

Simple but effective! If you're checking a page hourly switch to daily! Weekly is an option too if the content you care about doesn't change too often.

If you have lots of tracks and you'd like to change the check frequency of all them - get in touch and we can do that for you.

Track just a section of the page

Often all of the content you care about on a page is in one part of the page - you can opt to just track that section.

Edit your track and check the Just part of the page option 

Then click on the Select which section of the page to track link. 
Wait a little while for Trackly to analyse the page and you'll  be able to select a section of the page to track.
