How to set up bulk alerts on web and mobile

Setting up bulk alerts will allow you to easily group together items and set the same parameters across them. In previous versions of Sortly, this was limited to a single item, but we have since addressed this option by allowing you to select multiple items at once and make changes to that grouping of items. 

Let's get started. To select multiple items at once, make sure you are on the items tab here: Go into the folder where you would like to set the bulk alerts and use the select tool. You will see this here: 


Then highlight the items that you would like to set the alerts for. This should look like the following: 


Once the items have been selected, click on the Set Alerts button. (Bell icon in the mobile screenshot) This should pop open a window for you on the web:


From here, you will select continue. You will then see the following screen which you will be able to set the alerts on: 


Build out the alert setting to your needs and hit confirm when done. Remember that you are able to select different team members to send alerts to in the system if you are on the Advanced or Ultra versions of the software. 

Once you hit confirm, you will now see a little bell icon across the items that have an alert set for them seen here: 


Alerts will then be triggered when the threshold is met. You will see an alert in the app under the alerts tab as well as receiving an email for this alert. For more on alerts and the different settings you can choose please go here:
