Tired of checking a SharePoint library, list, or discussion board for updates? Do you have documents that you need to review any time another member of your team makes a change? You can use SharePoint alerts to monitor any file, folder, or list for changes. With alerts, SharePoint can notify you on a weekly, daily, or immediate basis.
Setting up an alert is easy!
- Visit the library or list you would like to monitor.
- From the Actions menu, choose Alert Me and follow the on screen instructions.
