Use Case: Monitoring Apple’s Website

Let’s take an example to show off Snoop Hawk's competitor analysis feature. We'll go to Apple’s website to see what products they have.

Apple Website Screenshot

As we can see, Apple typically features their latest products on their homepage. We can set up jobs to monitor this for any changes.

Step 1: Setting Up the Job

First, we enter Apple's URL and name our job. Let's call it "Apple Job."

Apple usually showcases their main products on their homepage. Here, we see it’s the iPhone 15.

We can preview the website and see the screenshot to ensure it captures the elements we want. We can switch between different viewports in case we are interested in mobile or tablet views versus the default desktop view.

Step 2: Asking Questions

Next, we move on to questions. We can ask open-ended or multiple-choice questions. We start by asking an open-ended question about what products are displayed on the page. We also ask a multiple-choice question for the phone being shown on the main page:

  • Question: "Is the featured phone the iPhone 15?"
    • Options: Yes, No

Step 3: Setting Up Triggers

We set up a trigger to send us an email if the phone featured is not iPhone 15. This is useful if we want to know immediately when Apple introduces a new phone.

Step 4: Scheduling the Job

We can now schedule our job. We can run it immediately or schedule it for later. Here, we pick it to run daily.
