E-mail notification when number of ads fall dramtically

I have about 10 shops running Google Shopping with a lot af listings. I have several times experienced problems with my feed, which means that the number of ads falls from for instance 5000 to 1200 listings. I do however not receive any warnings about this, since there still is a lot of listings. 

 

Is there any solution to set up a warning when there is a sudden drop in the number of listings/ads?

currently, there is no such feature -- the entire notification system
is either on, or off, and google determines the notification details,
which were updated, to trigger a notification only when the number

of valid-items drops by five-percent.

generally, google's systems expect all product-inventory-data to be
high-quality and adhere to all rules, policies, and recommendations,
before being submitted, rather than waiting for items to be flagged.

google does offer the upload-as-test and the content-api-dry-run
features to help test the quality of data before being submitted.

too many, or too frequent, policy-flags, over time, can trigger
a more permanent suspension from the program, at any time.
