What are alerts?

There may often be topics that you are particular interested in. For example you might not want to be involved in day-to-day activities in some groups but still want to be aware when they mention a project that you are part of. To do this you can set up alerts.

To set up alerts, click on the drop-down menu button at the top right of the screen and then choose the My alerts option and then click on the Edit button. Here you can enter one alert topic in each box - as each is filled a new one is created. When you have finished click the Save button.

You can get information on new content that matches your alerts in several ways:

  • On the Radar, your alerts are shown on the left of the page. A bell icon will appear next to an alert when new content is available.
  • To view all matching content matching your alerts, choose the My alerts option from the menu activated by clicking the drop-down menu button at the top right of the page.
  • If you are subscribed to a daily email newsletter from the system then new matching content will be listed in the newsletter.
