  • Hello Rahul,

    This option is not available for FAST for SharePoint, as it's an option of the built-in SharePoint Search. You can however use the RSS feed instead to work around the limitations. But if you want e-mail alerts you would have to develop something yourself around this.

  • Would this also mean that the alert engine feature of FAST ESP is not carried forward to FS4SP ?

  • Hi Ashwani

    Yes, that is true. The alert engine that was available with FAST ESP is not available with FS4SP.
