AnswerData driven alerts is a new feature starting in Tableau Server 10.3. The ability to set specific conditional data driven alerts is still based on workarounds.
Workaround for conditional alerts based on time of day:
Option 1Change the time interval that the Server checks for to confirm when conditions are true.(See link in upper right)
Change the extract refresh schedule, since server also checks alerts whenever extracts in the related workbook are refreshed.
Workaround for conditional alerts based on when the underlying data reaches a threshold of N or more records:
Create a secondary view counting the records and create an additional alert on the secondary view.
Create a filter on the view to only show the bars with N or more records in the underlying data.
