1. Select either Slack or Microsoft Teams.



2. Add a name for your Pulse, and then select your Brand you’d like to create a Pulse for.

BrandGraph Pulse updates are set in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This is a 4-hour difference between Eastern Time and a 7-hour difference between Pacific Time.

You can receive daily notifications for the most followed creators that mention the selected brand and for the most engaged pieces of content that mention the selected brand. 

Weekly summaries of performance can be set for brands in addition to summaries for the top influencers by follower count and top influencers by engagement count.
