Alerts are defined to automatically send emails to users to notify them of a certain event, giving them the ability to better manage and monitor key business processes.
Set up alerts per user in 3 simple steps.
STEP 1: Configuring alert in SAP Business One
Main Menu > Administration > System initialization > General Settings > Services Tab
Select “Send alerts for activities scheduled today”
Select “Display inbox when new message arrives”
Select “Enable Alert Service”
Enter appropriate duration in “Update Messages” field
STEP 2: Defining user’s email address
Main Menu > Administration > Setup > General > Users
Enter the user’s email address.
STEP 3: Defining and activating alert
Main Menu > Administration > Alerts Management
Search SAP pre-defined alerts and select one.
OR, if you have an existing user defined query:
Switch to add mode by pressing Ctrl + A to define your own alert
Name the new alert
Set the priority
Activate it by selecting ‘Active’ check box
Click on ‘Open Saved Query’ to select an existing user defined query.
Then, set the frequency of the alert.
Lastly, select “Internal” and “Email” in the column check boxes next to the user you would like to notify.
All you have to do is locate the alert and remove the tick from ‘Active’ option in alert definition window.
