Sometimes, you might want to stop receiving new mentions for an alert but still keep the results already collected.
Although you won't find any dedicated button to pause your alert, it is possible to block new mentions from appearing in your feed. You need to go into your Alert settings and follow these steps:
1. Make sure to remove all Monitored Pages and reviews pages from your Alert (for both Basic Alerts and Advanced Alerts).
2. You can add a required keyword in your Keywords Settings or your Boolean Query which would be impossible to find. One of my personal favorite is actually Impossiblekeywordtomonitor, but any random set of letters will work.
If you have any trouble pausing an Alert, reach out to the Support and we will make sure to help! 😉
Please note that pausing an Alert is now available through the Mention API.
