HI @Ankur P

I dont think you can create that kind of alert with GA interface but I think this will be possible with App Script. But the biggest challenge is going to be data delay if you are using GA free account then your data may be delayed up to 24 hrs in which case hourly updates makes no sense at all.

HI

I am not entirely sure what you are trying to achieve. Because your segement will include every session on your website because all hours of day are less than or equal to 23. 

Which means if on any given day if your total number of sessions fall below 1000 this trigger should fire.

Actually I was trying to make custom alert of session per hour and if the
traffic is less than 1k in any hour of the day then the alert should trigger

If in between 4-5 pm traffic is 800 then it should trigger at that instant
of time
