How do I create an alert on a document library in SharePoint?

  • Click on the ... in the grey bar across the top of the page and select Alert Me 

  • The ‘Alert me when items change' pop-up will appear: 

  • The alert will be given a title – you can change this to suit you (e.g. ‘Change in Suzy’s Document Library’)
  • Change any of the settings as required
  • Click OK to finish.
  • You will now be emailed when there are changes in the document library.
