Advanced State/Status View

So I am trying to build a state view that will show logical disks that are alerting on Low Disk space. While it's easy to create a State/Status view of Logical Disks in Critical states, I'm not having much luck in just showing those that are alerting or "Low Disk Space". When I create the

…now that I read this for the third time, I see you’re telling me that I cannot do this with the State view. It must be done through the alerts view. :frowning:
