Create Alert

Mention is a monitoring tool that helps businesses monitor social media and the web. Using this action, you can create a new alert in mention. To achieve this, add this action to your canvas and configure it. Select the appropriate access token for Mention. If you haven’t created an access token, select ‘Add New’ to create one. 

In the ‘Name’ field, enter a suitable name for the alert that you wish to create. Provide your Mention account id in the ‘Account ID’ field. The ‘Countries’ field allows you to add the name of countries for which to accept mentions. You can enter multiple values by clicking the ‘+ Country’ link. Example Values: “US”, “CA”. You can also select the language for mentions and enable/disable noise detection. Then, select the source of mentions from the given list. 

You can also specify an array of keywords that you wish to include, exclude or are required. Lastly, enter a list of sites that you wish to block. Mentions from the blocked sites will be excluded. Once you enter these details, click on ‘Done’ and run the workflow. This will create a new alert.
