How do I update a Shepard's Alert®?

Note: Only Shepard's Alert® searches can be updated manually. Search alerts are updated automatically according to the update schedule you set up when you created the alert.

You can update, or run, a Shepard's Alert® to check for changes in between dates it is scheduled to run automatically. To update an alert:

  1. On the Lexis Advance® home page, select View all alerts from the Alerts pod, or select the Alerts link from the More drop-down list at the top of any page.
    Note: When you first view the alerts list, it is filtered based on which experience you are working in when you view all alerts. For example, if you are working in LexisNexis® Verdict & Settlement Analyzer and you view your alerts, the list is limited to show only Verdict & Settlement Analyzer-related alerts. You can clear this filter and view all of your available alerts (regardless of which experience you are working in) by clicking the X next to the filter name, above the Narrow By pane.
  2. Locate the alert you want to update.
  3. Select the Update Now button (Refresh) under the title of the alert you want to update.
  4. When the Update Shepard's Alert box opens, select Update Now.
