Scup lets you create rules to optimize your monitoring. These are automatic actions that are implemented in your projects.
To create a rule, go to Settings > Rules > Add new rule. You will then complete four steps to put them into operation: Searches, Condition, Action and Time.
The second step in creating your rule is to define the Condition, that is, what needs to happen for the rule to be applied. In this step, you have two options: create the rule by percentage or by text, user and reach.
In by percentage, you choose how many mentions (%) you would like to collect in your searches.
In by text, user and reach, you can choose one or more options from the list below:
When you enter more than one of the above conditions, two possible combinations are opened:
All the conditions below (and) – Requires that the item has all established conditions in its body text for the action to be performed.
Any one of the options below (or) – In this case, there may be more than one added condition, operating independently. That is, Scup will consider if there is one or more terms defined in the text body in order to perform the action.
If you create a condition that combines the exact expression "Election" with the By user option of "Obama", you have two possibilities:
If you choose the All the conditions below option, your rule will collect all mentions made by the user Obama with the word "election".
If you choose Any one of the options below, your rule will collect all mentions, from any user, which contain the word "election", and all mentions made by the user Obama, even those which do not contain the word "election" .
Important: There is an exception when the established condition is Without the exact expression. In this case, the roles of All the conditions below and Any one of the conditions below are reversed. That is to say, the first option will consider any of the terms to perform the action; the second case must, necessarily, have all the terms in order to apply the rule.
