Sharepoint SMS alerts

I would like to configure text message alerts for Sharepoint in Office 365. When I click on 'alert me', I am brought to a page where I can click it with a radio button, however it is grayed out. I like through the Sharepoint admin center and couldn't find anything. This is on Office 365

Hi zelfanet,

Unfortunately it looks like Microsoft has disabled SMS alerts for Sharepoint in Office 365. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Configure-a-SharePoint-site-for-mobile-devices-ddf28727-3bfe-4b56-951d-c97204eac475?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US has more details under the last section Set alerts to update you of changes.

Hope this helps,
Martin Nguyen

No problem, sorry there isn't a solution for you. Microsoft does say that it supports notifications through its mobile app if you wanted more than  just email notifications. Also, I came across this add-in for Sharepoint that supports SMS alerts, but it does have a subscription https://timeparity.com/sms-sharepoint.

Cheers,
Martin

Thanks Martin,

You'd think Microsoft would just eliminate the radio button. It wasn't that urgent but since I saw it there, I thought we could use it....

Are you an expert on Sharepoint? I'm trying to figure out how to create a template of a team hub site.  https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29117539/Create-sharepoint-template-in-Team-site.html

Thanks again

I'm not a full on expert on Sharepoint, but I'll take a look at your question and see if I can help in any way.

When looking at enabling SMS it looks like its been a long running issue that people think they can enable it with 365 but can't. It'd definitely odd that Microsoft hasn't taken out the radio button, or provided a clearer explanation that it isn't supported.
