The Alerts page

When you receive an alert, go to the Alerts page to view it. Alerts are also sent to affected users' email addresses (for each user that has a valid email address that is set up).

For a detailed list of events that might trigger an alert and for more information about setting up alerts, see the IBM® Marketing Operations Administrator's Guide.

To view alerts, log in and click the Alerts icon (Envelope icon). Clicking, or scrolling, over the alerts icon shows a drop-down menu that separates the alerts for your installed applications. The number of alerts is displayed to the left of each application name. After you choose which application's alerts to view, the page displays the following information:
