Don’t Forget About the “Alerts” feature in Windows SharePoint Services

One reason we built the Microsoft Small Business Channel Community Site using Windows SharePoint Services was specifically to demonstrate what Windows SharePoint Services can offer to you and your customers who implement it.  One of these features of the Microsoft Small Business Channel Community Site is “Alerts”. 

As you navigate throughout the site, if you are logged in with your user name and password, you will notice a link called, “Alert Me,” in the left-hand nav bar.  By clicking on this feature, it will allow you to set up “Alerts” on that folder which will automatically send you an email alert whenever content is added, deleted, or modified on that page.  That way, you always have the most up to date information on the areas of the site which are most helpful to you.  Plus you will know when a new offer, announcement, etc. gets posted.  Also, be sure to read through the Small Biz Community User Guide we have posted in the MS Shared Documents section of the site for more tips on using it.  You can also read the “What We Use” page on our site to learn more about the technologies we use on the site.

Just a quick tip to help make your experience with the Microsoft Small Business Channel Community Site the best it can be.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
