Westlaw Australia Tip - Consolidate multiple alerts into a newsletter

Last Published: September 01, 2021

Learn how to create a newsletter to combine multiple alerts into one email.

It is easiest to create your component alerts first before creating the newsletter. 

If you are setting up alerts or newsletters as part of a current awareness service, we recommend that you set up all library/knowledge staff as Administrators, so that they all can amend or set up alerts created by another Administrator. You can email the Tech Care team with the names and email addresses of users to be set up as Administrators.

Watch videos on creating alerts below.

Creating a newsletter after you have created the component alerts

  1. In the top menu, click on Notifications.
  2. Select Alerts.

If you have Administrator privileges, set the owner as Administrator.
