Downstream Notifications

Communicate key updates and upcoming changes to downstream users and key stakeholders easily with downstream notifications.
Select Start supports downstream notifications to be able to quickly reach out to the top users of data assets or downstream owners when there is an update or upcoming breaking change.
Downstream notifications are supported for Database Tables and BI Dashboards. The following groups are supported:
  • Database Tables
    • Downstream Owners - This is anyone who owns a table (including BI models) or dashboard
    • Table Users - Top 25 users with the most queries against the table (including data source users who may not be linked to a Select Star user)
    • Dashboard Users - Top 25 users with the most views/queries of dashboard directly downstream from the database table
  • BI Dashboards
    • Top Users - Top 25 users with the most views/queries of dashboard directly downstream from the database table
Note: the users in these groups can also be seen in the coresponding tab in Top Users for the object.
Users must be an admin or owner of the object to send a downstream notification.

Creating a Downstream Notification

Create a downstream notification from anywhere on the object with the Notify button on the top right. This will automatically take you to the Discussion tab and open the notification modal.
Users can also navigate to the Discussion tab and create a notification when drafting your message.
Users can select a recipient for the notification, choosing from one of the preset groups, or adding additional users and teams to the list.
​
The author can see which users are in a group by hovering over that group or in the Top Users tab on that object.
After selecting recipients and crafting your message, click Send and you're done. Users will receive downstream notifications in-app as well as in their email (if they have email notifications enabled).
