Understanding Alerts and RSS Feeds

Alerts provide notification to a particular user when an item of interest has been added or updated within the portal. When a new alert is created, the user can define the areas of interest and set up how the notification will occur. An alert can be established for any list in SharePoint by selecting Actions Alert Me from the drop-down menu on the list toolbar. When you set up an alert, you can specify options regarding how you want to be alerted. You can ask for an e-mail immediately or have all alerts packaged and sent to you periodically. Figure 3-5 shows a typical alert received in Microsoft Outlook.
