The main tasks of alerts are to send reports about a specific content source via email. Alerts can be added only to content sources that have been searched by the inspector.
We distinguish between alerts and alert items. An alert can include multiple alert items. An alert item contains the path of the folder or the file as well as the assignment to the original content source. Create a new alert item by selecting an entry in the report windows and by clicking on the menu item “Alert” and then “New Alert”.
Please note that alerts will only be sent if the Workflow Manager was installed and the SMTP settings configured.
