    Figure 11-10 The Create New Agent Dialog

    This image is described in the surrounding text.
  2. In the Name field, enter a name for the agent.

    The "Agent editor" is displayed and the information that you specified in the Create New Agent dialog defaults into the "Agent editor: Condition tab" and the "Agent editor: Delivery Content tab."

  3. (optional) Specify a description in the Description field.

  4. Select the location in which to save the new agent.

  5. Select the status that initiates the agent to deliver its content and execute its actions from the Trigger Agent if KPI Status is list.

  6. (optional) Select a value for the dimensions. Note that agents cannot have KPI dimensions with multiple values.

  7. Click OK.

  8. Complete and save the agent. See "Creating Agents" for additional information.

Best Practice:

Use agents for KPIs and scorecards to monitor performance, continuous feedback, and real-time alerts.

Use actions to align day-to-day decisions with your corporate strategy and to trigger alerts for "out of the ordinary" results.
