Are alerts stored localy on user computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If a user has an alert set on a list and then has their computer replaced should the alert follow or do they need to be reset?

  • The alerts will still trigger.  Alerts are set on a list / library level and stored within the SharePoint site collections, databases etc.  Providing new rig to your users shouldn't stop intefere with that. 

    Anyone with admin rights can check that on the appropriate site though if confirmation is needed.
