#97 Get Alerted by Email Anytime a SharePoint Document Changes

December 20, 2011

Do you wish you could be alerted whenever an important document is modified? If you store your important files and information on SharePoint, you can use Alerts to generate automatic notifications. You can even use a SharePoint alert to create a daily or weekly digest of everything that has changed in a SharePoint library.

Alerts are a powerful feature that can be set on any item, list, library, or calendar on SharePoint.

  1. Click on the Library tab.
  2. Click Alert Me, then choose Set alert on this library.


For more help, visit our SharePoint Documents Overview or our eBooks and videos at the ITS Library(LawKey required).
