How to: Add or Edit Alerts

You can create alerts for yourself, or for other people, that send an e-mail when events that you specify occur. You receive alerts in e-mail and can obtain additional information about the alert by clicking links in the alert.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Readers group or have the View project-level information permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To add alerts

  2. Select the check box next to the alerts you want.

  3. For each alert, in the Send to column, add the e-mail addresses of the team members who should receive the alert. You can use a distribution list to simplify managing recipients when team members are added or removed.

  4. For each alert, in the Format column, select HTML or Plain text for the type of e-mail message to be sent.

  5. Click OK to save your alerts for the selected project.
