Creating a New Alert
In the List
where you want to create the Alert
, click the Library
tab on the Ribbon
The name of this tab varies, depending on the type of list or library you want to create an alert for. For example, for a calendar list, it’s the calendar tab.
- In the Share & Track group, click Alert Me button and then click Set alert on this library.
On the New Alert page, in the Alert Title section, change the title for the alert if you want. The title appears in the subject line of the alert e-mail message and is also used for managing alerts.
In the Delivery Methods section, select the method of delivery you want for your alerts. Note: as a staff member you can set up an alert for students.
If the Change Type section is available, choose the types of changes that you want to be notified about. For example, you can receive alerts about all changes or only when items are deleted.
In the Send Alerts for These Changes section, specify whether you want to be alerted for all types of changes, or for specific changes, such as when anything changes or only when someone changes an item that you created or recently changed.
In the When to Send Alerts section, choose how frequently you want to receive the alerts, such as immediately or in a daily or weekly summary, and at what day or time.
Note: Depending on how your site and servers are set up, the person you created an alert for might receive an e-mail message that confirms that you created an alert. The alert e-mail message might provide links to the list or library, alert settings, the name of the person who created the alert, and other information and commands.
