Task with custom

I work for a company that produces woodworking machines. Every machine has a gateway that sends data to our cloud e.g. status of the machine.
We would like to start using influxdb to implement a notification service.
Every time a machine change status we would like to send a notification (email/slack …).
I have read the following articles

A useful feature should be


but this works only with the four std _level ( crit , warn , info , or ok), we have 8 custom states so I can’t map this to the standard level :frowning:
In an article I read that:

. If you need to define more than 4 custom levels for your check, we recommend making multiple checks and implementing helpful check naming, custom tags, and messages

where can I find an example?
Thanks in advance and I apologize for the length of the message,

Hello @bjbezzi,
That’s such a cool use case.
Give me a day to test some stuff and get back to you. Thank you for your patience. If I don’t get back to you end of day tomorrow ping me.

Hello @bjbezzi,
I wonder if this would work for you?

It works based off of the assumption that your thresholds or states are defined in an incremental way like this so you don’t accidentally get two “info” levels from different _level_tags sequentially.

Hello @Anaisdg your solution works perfectly.
With this method I can only use the map convention for sending messages, e.g. to slack? I iterates on results and for each send a message. It is correct?
Thanks again and sorry for the trivial questions, but it’s the first time I use InfluxDB,
