I have a List with a one filtered view. I set an Alert on the list, hoping that the email would only show the items that pass the filter. But everything in the List is showing up in the email.

  • Is this normal?
  • Is there a way to make the Alert only show the items that pass the View filter?

Yes it's normal, the Alerts works on all items within the list regardless the filter settings!

Is there a way to make the Alert only show the items that pass the View filter?

As OOTB, Unfortunately, No


Workaround

You can create a workflow that sends an email alert with IF condition that simulates your filter settings

For example: you have configured the filter with a specific column equal to a specific value, so in your workflow drop If condition with this rule then sends email alert in case the condition true!
