File & Folder Activity Email Alerts

Email alerts are sent to owner of files and folders when changes to documents occur. The users are allowed to specify the specific events to which they wish to get the email alerts from the Properties of any file and folder.


The first step you need to take to start using the alerts system is to configure outbound (SMTP) email server. Docsvault can use any standard SMTP server that you have access to. Enabling Client Side Alerts in Docsvault Server Manger, allows the system to notify the user to set email alerts on Task as well as on document and folder. For more information on setting up Email Alert, refer Alerts in Server Manual.


When you set Alert on a folder, Docsvault sends you an e-mail alert whenever the set event trigger on that folder or a document in that folder.


At a glance, you will able to see all the email alerts as shown below. You can edit the setting by double clicking on the Alert. To learn how to set an email alert, see Email Alerts under 'Working with Documents' section.
