I want to create a alert when a specific field is changed... I have a drop down and when the word "Eng" is chosen the person that sets the alert gets notified... how would that alert be set up?


If you want to see all changes based on a column:

  • Create a view to show only those items that have that column "Eng" through a filter
  • Set up an alert to use that view
  • Whenever someone changes an item in that view, you should get an alert

enter image description here

If you want to get an alert if a specific column changes TO a value, you may have to set up a workflow or event receiver that checks to see if the value is "Eng", and send a notification if the column equals "Eng".
