Creating alerts

Online Help

You create alerts by creating rules to determine when to alert.

You set up your alerts according to:

  • Which events you want to receive alerts for

  • Where you want to be notified of alerts

Your default email contact method is already set up using the email address that is associated with your account. You can receive alerts at another email address or an SMS device.

See Adding, changing, or deleting contact methods to receive alerts

To create an alert

  1. In the top-right of the management console banner, in your email address drop-down, click My Profile.

    To create an alert for another user, click the Users page and the user's name to create the alert.

  2. Click Alert Preferences, and then expand the contact method you want to create an alert for by clicking "+".

    If you want to receive alerts at a contact method other than the ones shown, you must first add a new contact method.
