Managing Alerts in SharePoint

A common issue i see on a daily basis is people getting alerts for Libraries when they no longer work in that sector. They are unsure of what library or site they had alerts on. So an easy way to find out is to do the following…

View my alerts on a site
1.At the top of the site, click Welcome User name , and then click My Settings.
2.Click My Alerts.
Top of Page

Change my alert settings
1.At the top of the site, click Welcome User name , and then click My Settings.
2.Click My Alerts.
3.Click the name of the alert that you want to change.
4.On the Edit Alert page, change the settings that you want to change.
5.Click OK.

Tip When you receive an e-mail alert, you can click a link to see alert information on the site.

Note If you are a site designer or administrator, you can change the alert e-mail message by modifying the XML files for alerts. The alert confirmation, however, cannot be customized.

Cancel an alert for myself
1.At the top of the site, click Welcome User name , and then click My Settings.
2.Click My Alerts.
3.Select the check box next to the alert or alerts that you want to cancel.
4.Click Delete Selected Alerts.
5.When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click OK, if you are sure that you want to cancel the selected alerts.
