Sending automated alerts from Apify has several benefits. Users can react to critical situations quickly and to take according action. Here come some sample use cases:
Alerts on certain Actor states, e.g. failures
Web scraping alerts, e.g. if a web page changes or if a certain value or price reaches a threshold
Use Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to monitor your web workflows and alert admins if a workflow fails (before your customers will recognize)
Integrate with other tools including AI (ChatGPT, LLMs) to create powerful alerting workflows
