  • Hey Dean,

    There is not an out-of-box feature in SharePoint that will allow you to send an alert when a search crawl is completed. You may be able to accomplish this through a custom solution that you would have to develop for your environment. If you want to get an idea of if this is a possibility through a custom code solution, you may want to reach out to the SharePoint development forums and see if you can get some direction on how to proceed if you decide to go this route.
