Getting Started with the Alerts User Interface

The Alerts user interface provides mechanisms for viewing alerts, searching and filtering alerts, grouping alerts to facilitate management, and changing alert status. The Alerts user interface defaults to displaying the Alerts table when first opened.

You can use the Alerts user interface tool bar to perform searches and manage the Alerts UI settings.
