Rule building in MS Teams uses the same concepts as in Slack and this is covered in greater details here: Creating Monitoring Rules

In summary, there are 3 types of rules:

Threshold - A threshold rule allows you to set a specific value for any KPI.
Example: Alert me if my weekly spend ever drops below $2,000

Fluctuation - A fluctuation rule allows you to set a percent change for any KPI.
Example: Alert me if my weekly spend ever changes by more than +/- 30%

Anomaly - Trigger any time the 7-day moving average deviates from the 28-day moving average. These alerts are set up automatically and do not need to be created.

Rules can be configured in one of three ways:

  • @eletype rule
  • @eletype settings ➡️ then click on the Rules button
  • Or click on the ⚙️ icon in any notification

Here is what rule building looks like:

You can Enable, Pause or Delete a rule by clicking on the Status dropdown, like this:


Note: All new connections will automatically have a 10% spend fluctuation rule.
