Use this add-on to setup email notifications on a Google Sheet when specific cells reach set values.
Use Magic Cell Notifications to monitor cells within your Google Sheet and automatically notify you via email or Slack when pre-set criteria or values are reached. The applications for this add-on are vast and the additional options allow for personalisation and flexibility to meet your needs.
There are 4 different types of monitoring that you can setup using MCN
1. Single cell notifications (Monitor one specific cell)
2. Row (Monitor an entire row)
3. Column (Monitor an entire column)
4. Range (Monitor a specific range of cells)
Each one of these methods allows you to monitors cells using the following criteria:

When using this add-on you can load a sidebar menu to set up notification rules on your Google Sheet. You can add as many rules as you like and the add-on will keep a track of them on a dedicated worksheet. You can view this worksheet and even amend the rules directly on the sheet.
Once the spreadsheet is changed and the values reach the notification rules you have set you will automatically receive an email/Slack notification to inform you. You can also add multiple email addresses to one notification rule simply by separating them by a comma. If you are using email notifications you can now also add CC and BCC addresses to your notifications easily
MCN runs on 4 occasions, which you can turn on and off using the menu, and these are the triggers of the add-on.
1. Edit (A user edit to the Google Sheet)
2. Form Submission (A linked Google Form is submitted)
3. Hourly (Once per hour)
4. Daily (Once a day)
You can also personalise the email or Slack notifications using your own text and can even use HTML to format and improve the look and layout of your messages. MCN also gives you the ability to insert fields from your Google Sheet directly into the email but please see the user guide for more information on what fields you can insert:
Additional features of the add-on include the ability to turn off and deactivate rules from your rule sheets at the click of a button. You can now get MCN to highlight in your worksheets where the latest match or change has taken place. MCN does Slack webhooks and it has been tested and also works with IFTTT (76 characters) and Zapier.
