I created a list in SharePoint and I have created two views from that list. I want to create two Alerts, one triggered from each view however when I  create the Alerts only one of the views show up in the drop down section of the Alert creation dialog box. Why is my other created view not appearing in the alert creation dialog box drop down and how can I get it to do so?

This can happen when there's some calculation in the View, for example I've seen documented that filtering on [Modified] = [Today] is fine, but once the condition is changed to '[Modified] = [Today]-14' then the view no longer shows up in the alert conditions.

The other one is when view is filtering on Approval Status.

Does the view that isn't showing up have anything like this?
