Using 34901A module to scan AND switch - battery discharge testing

I'm trying to use a 34901A module in a battery discharge test.  I have one channel set up to measure Voltage across the battery and another channel to measure Current out.

My question is, is it possible for me to have it automatically switch off the current once I reach a certain voltage threshold?  I need it to open the current and open the circuit once the battery has been discharged to a certain voltage (so I don't damage the battery) 

I have been doing this manually, but there is no audible alarm on the 34970A module (or I have been setting it wrong) and I been missing it.

thanks in advance for your help!
