In order to create an alert, follow these steps:

1.  create View for example “All Open bugs”, or “All requirements without test case traceability”

2.  Open admin and select Alerts





3.  Create new alert, by filling these fields:

  • Name – Alert name
  • Project – Specific project
  • Work Item – Specific work item
  • Filter – the filter (view) for which you wish to get the alert. Note: Alert is sent only if the filter return results.
  • Active – set alert to active/not active
  • Description – Free text for alert description
  • Alert Frequency – Select period (daily or weekly)
  • Time to send alert – time when alert is sent
  • Expiration date – Alert expire date (can be set to never expire bu checking “This alert should not expire”)
