It would be great if you could setup an alert in a chart based on another block just like you can with dataviews.
Your request is not completely clear to me. How do you think the alert should be applied to the chart? Can you give me some more infos on what is the problem you need to solve with this feature?
If you want you can refer to this guide on how to write and share an idea:

I am also interested in this idea, I hope I understood the intention of the author properly and will explain how the alert based on another block should be applied to the chart.
1. What is the idea?
It is to allow for the graph object (both in Windows and web Client if possible) the same option as the already available option in a dataview.
(Layout > Data > block x > Alert > option "use another block as value")
2. What specific problem should be solved?
This option would allow to colour differently a layout's data block depending on an alert calculated in another block of the same layout.
I draw a small example:
In this graph I compare the current performance of 4 production sites against the previous year and I want to place emphasis on the Sites having a huge gap between both years, using a threshold.
If the Gap% of a Site is above the threshold, then I would like to colour the relevant bars in orange, i.e. only for the block a "current" and the concerned Site.
So in this example, Site 1 and 2 should keep the default green colour, and Site 3 and 4 get a new "alert" colour, e.g. orange here.
Currently, I cannot set a colour for this specific bars, and cannot indicate to the user using a dedicated colour that Site 3 and 4 need accurate attention.
If the option would be available in a graph's layout, I would create a block e with the algorithm if(c>d,1,0) and set the alert colour accordingly.
3. What workaround have you found and used so far (if any)?
I don't know any workaround for this-
scapuano, please let me know if you would prefer a fresh new idea item for this topic, I would create a new one then.
Hello Interest Typ,
Yes , please, it is better to create a new topic because the initial idea from Carrol was not clear.
To all the voters (Helmut Heimann, emanuele volpi, Tomi Kalin, The specified item was not found., Ray Martens, Sebastian Gurt, Audrey Nobles, Mads Meissner), >here< is the new formal idea for this topic.
Hello scapuano, Could you set the status of this idea to "archived" please? Since I opened a new one, this idea could be confusing for a new visitor of the community website
