I have a list of person with the same alert needs. This alerts are listening document from differents locations. I dont want to change all those alerts after every changes on this list of person. Do you have a solution ?

(The best solutions whould be to set a sharepoint group as receivers in the alert configuration but it doesn't work).


Since the SharePoint Group has no email address, the alert email cannot send to the members of the SP group.

As an alternative, you can create a Mail-enabled security group in Office 365 Admin center: Groups tab->Groups->Add a group button. enter image description here

Then in the set alert page, assign the “Send Alert to” this mail-enabled security group.
