Using Alerts

One of the most difficult obstacles encountered in the business world is knowing when information changes. Windows SharePoint Services can help with this problem by enabling you to subscribe to an alert. When a document changes to which you subscribe, you receive an e-mail message stating that the document has changed.

For example, you (Bill Malone in the example) may want to know when the OakChest.docx document is updated. In the following exercise, you will set up an alert for this document and then receive an alert that it has been changed.
