Refer to WorldShare Admin, Alerts management for more information on how to configure Alerts.
Alerts appear when you are signed in to your library's WorldShare instance. When alerts are sent to your account, the numbered box on the far left of the navigation bar turns orange and displays the number of unread alerts. If you have no alerts or have read all of your alerts, the box will be gray and contain a zero (0).
Alerts can be sent to you by another user or by the system.
