We recommend all users opt into ‘Adhoc alerts’. This will send you an email each time something is assigned for your attention in OneFile. If this is not selected, you will need to log in to OneFile and look at your pending tasks to discover what is assigned to you. To opt in to email alerts, tick the box in the ‘Adhoc alerts’ section.

There is also the option under the ‘Daily Digest’ section to be sent email notifications on specific days with a breakdown of content for your attention. The daily digests will only send you a message when there are new alerts awaiting your attention. They will not contain any alerts already sent to you in previous messages.

4. Email alert options

Once you have selected the appropriate check boxes click the ‘Save’ button. Your email alerts are now successfully set up.
