I am trying to enable alerts for certain users on a specific discussion category. We have several categories in a discussion board that are specific to certain roles in our company. So, when one particular category is updated, I want an alert sent to the appropriate people.
I have set up alerts on a category, and the alerts do not go out when a new discussion is posted, or updated, etc. However if I put the alert on the root of "Discussions", then the alert goes out to the specified users.
So, is there a way to have alerts send out any time a discussion is added/changed under a particular category?
