  • Hi,

    In oob way it is not possible to create alerts on folder level. However you can do it with some customization.

    You can follow these steps:

    1. Create a sharepoint designer workflow and before sending the alert from this workflow check if the URL of the item contains folder name or not.

    2. You can implement event receiver to do the same.

    I hope this will help you out


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
