Navigating the Alert Manager

Given your ability to create as many different types of alerts for one specific company, or for a large selection of companies we have created a number of navigation tools to help you manage the list.

You can either type in the search box a company code and the list will filter to display that company.

Or alternatively click on a column heading a the information will be sorted by that column.

All triggered alerts will automatically appear at the top of the page giving you quick access to issues that require immediate attention.

Email / Intraday alerts

Alerts can be setup to email you when they are triggered to help you make more timely and informed investment decisions. 

You also have the ability to have the alert set to trigger during the day. Leaving the box unchecked means you only receive alerts at the end of the trading day.

Editing/Deleting the alert

If you wish to edit the alert you can do so by:

- Clicking on the 'Edit' Button under the last column
(Edit popup box will appear)mceclip0.png
- Edit the criteria / notes of the alert
- Then click 'Save'

To Delete an alert, simply tick the alert and click on 'Delete' button.

Delete Obsolete Alerts

If you haven’t changed any alerts in the last 12 months for stocks not held within a portfolio, you will periodically receive an obsolete alert notification message at the top of the Alert Manager screen. This will include alerts set for companies that have since been delisted. You can then either act by clicking on the relevant buttons to delete obsolete alerts or simply close the notification.

The 3 options that will be provided are: 

  • Delete alerts for stocks that aren't in either your portfolios or watchlist
  • Delete alerts for stocks that aren't in your portfolios
  • Delete alerts for delisted stocks

Alternatively, you can dismiss the notification by click on the (x) in the top right corner.

Important note about Alerts

In order to ensure relevancy, keep your alerts up-to-date.

When an alert is triggered a decision will need to be made. Either reset the trigger, change the alert or delete it all together. Taking no action will mean the alert will lose all relevance as it will not alert you to any future change.
