audio notification when a numerical value reaches a specified threshold.

I require assistance with Power Automate. My goal is to receive an audio notification when a numerical value in a designated area of a web browser reaches or surpasses a specified threshold. Any guidance on achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @ziadn27 

 

Sorry i misunderstand the process, this should be the flow design:

Note: at the start, i have made launch browser to attach webpage already opened, for in your case you have to use launch a webpage to launch that webpage .

 

see the below flow zip file attached !

I was thinking within the system in which I'm Operating just to keep it simple.  But to receive notification on my phone would an awesome idea when i'm out of the desk area.   I have been trying for some time and I was able to successfully accomplish one of my needs (see first photo).  this uses OCR to detect changes within a specific region This notifies me when a bar graph appears in a vacant area.  This works perfectly as intended.  However the second one (Bottom photo) Isn't working.

Hi @ziadn27 

 

Ok, i was thinking you were using cloud flow along with desktop flow, so i have suggested the concept of notiifcation which is possible via power automate cloud flow !.

 

Coming to your query, i would suggest instead to use browser automation based actions get details of element on webpage to get details of element in the webpage and use its output to compare it with desired value

I'm kind of knew to all this,  not sure how to do that.

Hi @ziadn27 

 

Let me show how to do things step by step .

 

 

 

In this process,you create a desktop flow which scheduled to run at a specific time , check the value in website and send a beep notification (even you can send mobile notification as well via this approach)

 

1. Create a desktop flow 

Nived_Nambiar_4-1704219945663.png

 

 

 a. The flow will open the website  (here i am using it to launch google for demo purposes)

b. it extract attribute information from the ui element from where it need to extract the value using get details of elements on webpage 

Nived_Nambiar_1-1704219327656.png

 

Select the ui element and the attribute which you want to extract from the ui element (currently i have used Own text as attribute by which i can extract text within UI element), the result will be stored within the variable AttributeValue.

 

3. Create a output variable named ThresholdValue which is of boolean type which helps to send the result of desktop flow to cloud flow (to denote whether threshold value has reached or not)

Nived_Nambiar_2-1704219478522.png

 

4.use if -else action to set Threshold value like below , (i am assuming that threshold is 13 , if =13 set thresholdvalue as True, else False

Nived_Nambiar_3-1704219911974.png

 

 

Now close the webbrowser.

 

Now since the desktop flow design is completed, let;s create a cloud flow which create a scheduled flow for this desktop flow like below:

Hope this helps !

Thank You for your assistance,  It's very detailed, I was able to follow all the steps with the acceptation of the last step.  But I seem to be getting a Boolean error.  even though threshold value is set to Boolean.  I'm not sure if the link to the wvalue that im trying to read will help but here it is. link   I'm trying to get the value o fthe very top left numbers.error Boolean valueerror Boolean valuepricechange.png

Hi @ziadn27 

 

a simple, you have to assign boolean values like this:

Ok I added the % on each side and the error is gone.  but I don't know how to do the final step which is creating a cloud flow which creates a scheduled flow

Hi @ziadn27 

 

see the below article on how to create a scheduled cloud flow

https://www.process.st/how-to/create-a-scheduled-flow-in-power-automate/

 

see this article how to run a desktop flow within scheduled cloud flow:

This looks a bit over my head..  how can we just make it so that I get an audio notification, lets just keep it simple.

I just want to create a loop every 5 seconds to keep checking that number.  If the number is <= 1.000 I want to receive an audio notification on my desktop.  

Ok you just need to add play sound action instead of assigning Threshold Value as True in desktop flow 

 

But still to make the desktop flows run on scheduled manner you need to use create a schedule cloud flow which in turns trigger a desktop flow !

I think there is a problem with the reading of the actual numbers on the site.  It's not working at all for me.  I tried everything.

I've tried it a different way.  But for some reason I'm getting the audio notification even though the number haven't went bellow the threshold set.

Hi @ziadn27 

 

one thing to confirm, did you check whether match value /variable has value , in other words, whether flow is able to extract the required threshold value correctly ?

How do i check that?

Hi @ziadn27 

 

You check the value of Match variable from below highlighted field

Nived_Nambiar_0-1704479334443.png

 

But i am bit confused as Match seems to be a text variable how you are comparing as number ?

 

is it going through loop ?

 

 

the value is empty. 

is the flow going inside the loop ?
