How to set a SharePoint email alert
What is a SharePoint Alert?
Alerts are useful if you wish to be notified when a particular item is added, modified, deleted, or discussed. When any of these actions occur in a document library, SharePoint can send you an email that will alert you to the modification. Here’s how to set up an email alert:
- Log into SharePoint as a user with Administrator privileges
- Choose the document library for which you would like alerts.
- Select Actions>>Alert Me
- Fill out the parameters for your new alert and click OK.
