Can I set custom alerts to be sent in a smaller increment than day? (ie. hourly or every 6 hours)

Hi Duncan,

Unfortunately, Google Analytics only lets you choose a minimum time period of one day for intelligent alerts.

You can use the Google Analytics APIs (such as the Realtime API - to use Google Analytics data in your own programs - so you could create your own notifications based on real-time data outside of GA itself.
