In SharePoint when I go to set alerts, even if I filter down to a specific Category it gives alerts on ALL Categories or Discussions


This is because you have a filtered view, but the alert works for new/changed data. I'm afraid, the alerts will work for the whole discussion only.

You could split the discussion into several ones and set alert for each one.

  • ok, that's good to know but unfortunate - I wish they allowed you to set alerts per Category. There's no other workaround? – M. Patterson Jan 24 '18 at 13:07
