Update the Results of an Alert

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.

  • Only Shepard's Alert searches can be updated manually.

  • When you first view the alerts list, it is filtered based on which experience you are working in when you view all 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.

  1. On the home page, choose Alerts from the [UserName] drop-down list at the top of any page.
  2. Locate the alert you want to update.
  3. Select the Update Now button () under the title of the alert you want to update.
  4. When the Update Shepard's Alert box appears, select Update Now.
