What does it do?

The Anomaly Detector script lets you set an alert for scenarios where an account's key metrics deviates from the expected performance levels, for a given day of the week and hour of the day. It lets you see the status of all your accounts in a single spreadsheet and serves as a mini dashboard. 

This enhanced script is an adaptation of Google's Anomaly Detection script and works at the MCC account level. The script aggregates all settings and outputs in a single Google Sheet and adds a color-coded dashboard to complement email notifications.

Does the name of the Target Sheet (in the child account settings in Optmyzr) have to be the same as the name of the Spreadsheet it reports to?

The target sheet name must match exactly the name of the tab. If it can't find a match, it will make a new tab.

Does the e-mail alert send out notifications every hour for each metric checked? 

The system will continue to send emails about an alert every hour even if it's the same alert that happened last hour. We recommend getting one alert per day and use the settings for 'hours to check' to ensure you don't get emails before some reasonable time of the morning when there should be some significant stats.

Are the alerts for each metric independent from one another? 

We send at most one email per hour that includes all alerts together in 1 email.
