  • It is important to avoid embedding a file that is uploaded as it will not be readable by other users unless permissions are specifically granted to do so.

Setting up Alerts for Campus Collaboration Sites

To keep informed when a new campus collaboration message is posted - you may want to set up automatic alerts. Rather than checking a list for new announcements or messages, simply receive an email if something new on the list requires your attention!


  • Click on the Alerts link above the title of the announcement area.
