I know that a user can setup metric based email notifications using the bell icon on a dashboard. Is there a way how I can (maybe even programmatically) configure notifications for other users?

Configuring these kinds of notifications for other users is not possible at the moment, however, you can take a look at our Notifications API which allows advanced users to send notifications by email, text message, Salesforce Chatter, or to a REST endpoint. https://help.gooddata.com/doc/en/building-on-gooddata-platform/data-preparation-and-distribution/data-preparation-and-distribution-pipeline/data-pipeline-reference/data-integration-console-reference/notification-rules/setting-up-the-notifications-using-api. The last option (REST API) allows you to integrate with many additional systems; this blog post by our colleague Pavel Kolesnikov describes how to send notifications to Slack: https://www.gooddata.com/blog/gooddata-slack-integration. The notifications API is able to detect a bit broader set of situations than KPI dashboards including data loading related events.
