Other tips for setting up Alert 24 emails

  • When setting up an alert from your OnePass, change the default time from 8.30am to 9am(this allows for delays that sometimes take place).
  • In the “show excerpt of item” field, change the default setting of “summary” to “Full Article”
  • Note the text that says “Full article applies to Newsroom and Current Awareness alerts only”– Case Law content will default to displaying as a summary, with a link to the full judgment.
