Commands in Almond can be monitored and filtered: you can specify to be notified whenever the result changes, when a certain condition is true, or only for a certain subset of the data. For example:
- You can monitor the New York Times, and be notified when they publish a new article; or you can monitor just the articles with the word “Millennial”, so you know which industry is being killed now.
- You can monitor the weather, or you choose to be notified only when the temperature is below 40 degrees, and it's time to bring in your dog.
- You can monitor your work email, and then decide that, you know what, it's after hours, you don't want to be bothered.
Almond's conditions can make use of any result returned by a command, like the title of an article or the body of the new email. You can also use a command, and check if that satisfies a condition. Just specify your conditions in English, and let Almond notify you.
