Trigger an alert when the number of names added to a nurture exceeds an expected number?

Hi Folks,

Has anyone figured out a way to send trigger an alert when the number of names added to a nurture exceeds an expected number?

For instance, a list upload error might cause emails to get auto added to a nurture when they should not. 

I'm looking for some way to trigger an alert when more than 1,000 names are added to a nurture within the past 1 week.

Any thoughts on if and how to do this?

Cheers,

-Karla

The only way to do max-new-member caps (same underlying concept as max event registration caps) is by firing a webhook.

The back-end webhook-compat service maintains a counter. You set a TTL (= time-to-live = expiration) on each entry of 1 week. Then at any time, the current count means the people who've been added in that week. If it's over your limit, send back an alarm condition (like {"error":"over limit"}) which in turn triggers an Alert.

It's the kind of thing we have running all over the place, but isn't a native feature.
