Office 365: Setting an Alert on a Document

Did you know you can set an alert on a document for when changes are made?

To set an alert, go to your OneDrive account and find the document you want to set the alert for.  Click on the box next to it and a check will appear.  Then, click on Files.


Click on Alert Me, then Set alert on this document.


OneDrive will automatically fill in the fields as seen below.  If you want the alert to also go to someone else you can input their e-mail.  Also, decide if you want to get e-mails automatically, daily, or weekly.  The text messaging option does not work and I’m not sure if it ever will.


If you want to manage your alerts click on Manage My Alerts.


You can add alerts, delete alerts, or change alerts you have already set.


You are now set up to receive e-mail alerts when changes are made to your document. You rock!
