If you’re using a central SharePoint calendar for your business, it is often the go-to for your people. You can post meetings, leadership open office hours, events, functions, etc. You can also use them to administrative deadlines.
As with Discussions and Announcements, you can choose to receive an email when new calendar items are added.
In order to set up an alert, activate the Calendar to where you have a page that only shows the calendar. Above the site logo are several tabs.
- Click on the CALENDAR tab
- Choose Alert Me
- Set an Alert on this list
From the New Alert screen, I recommend that you add the site name in front of the title so that it appears in the subject line of your email.
Change Type: If you choose immediate notifications, I recommend you choose New items are added rather than All Changes.
When to Send Alerts: Choose your preferred option. For daily or weekly notifications, I recommend you set your time and day outside of normal working hours so you get a full day or week worth of changes at once.
