Can't create automatic notification when urgent ticket becomes overdue

We're trying to create an automatic notification that goes to the agents when a ticket with the highest priority level (urgent)becomes overdue? We can't currently do that with automations because we can't nullify any condition to make it work properly. Any thoughts?

Use tags to nullify in your automation. First, check ticket priority and age as before. Then add an additional condition:

        tags         contains none of the following        urgent_alert

Nullify the condition by adding a new action.

        add tags      urgent_alert

This prevents the automation firing again and will allow the automation to be created.
