Suppose we want to add alerts on behalf of other users. For this, we will take the example of adding alerts for a document library.
Click on “Actions” and then on “Alert Me” as encircled in the figure below:
Add the users in the “Users” text box against “Send Alerts To”.
Set the “Change Type” from
· All changes
· New items are added
· Existing items are modified
· Items are deleted
· Web discussion updates
Set the “Send the Alerts for these Changes” from
· Anything changes
· Someone else changes a document
· Someone else changes a document created by me
· Someone else changes a document last modified by me
Set the frequency of the alerts from
· Send e-mail immediately
· Send a daily summary
· Send a weekly summary
And click “Ok”.
