Creating an Alert

5. Choose how often you would like to receive the alert: Immediately (usually within 20 minutes of the event being deleted) or a digest email at a specified time. If you choose Specified time, set your start date, the time you would like to receive the alert, and your repeat interval. Click OK, then click Save.
6. Your alert has been created.
