How to Set Up Alerts
With more than 850,000 products in the database, it is difficult to remember everything of interest in SAGE Online. Alerts are a great way to set reminders of products or suppliers that have sparked users’ interest while searching the database tool.
To receive alerts, users must set up an account in the system. The SAGE Online homepage includes an Alerts section. By clicking on the “Edit” link, users can choose how they would like to receive the alerts that they set. This will ensure that they receive alerts in the way that is most convenient for them.
After an account is set up to receive alerts, actions can be configured to trigger the alerts that a user would like to receive. An alert for a specific product can be set by clicking on the My Product Info tab of the Product Detail page. There users can select if they would like to be alerted when the product is updated, goes on special, has a pricing change or if it becomes discontinued. An alert for a specific supplier can be set up by clicking on the My Supplier Info tab on the Product detail page. Another way to set alerts is by going into the Browse Specials area on the homepage. Here, category watch lists can be set. Preference Group alerts are also available in the Preference Groups tab.
If you are already a SAGE user, set your alerts now so you won’t miss out on any specials. And learn more about the SAGE benefits available through a PPAI membership here.
