Configure search-based alerts (Office SharePoint Server)

SharePoint 2007

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

You can deactivate search-based alerts.

When you reset the index and recrawl content, search-based alerts treat all results as new whether or not they were changed since the last crawl. This can cause users to receive unnecessary alerts.

When you reset the index and recrawl content, it is recommended that alerts be deactivated until a full update is completed.

  1. Open the administration page for the Shared Services Provider (SSP).

    To open the administration page for the SSP, do the following:

    1. On the top navigation bar, click Application Management.

    2. On the Application Management page, in the Office SharePoint Server 2007 Shared Services section, click Create or Configure this Farm’s Shared Services.

    3. On the Manage this Farm’s Shared Services page, click the SSP whose administration page you want to open.

  2. On the Shared Services Provider Home page, in the Search section, click Search settings.

  3. On the Configure Search Settings page, in the Crawl Settings section, click Search-based alerts.

  4. On the Configure Search-based Alerts page, click Deactivate to deactivate search-based alerts, or Activate to activate search-based alerts if they are currently deactivated.
