    How do I set up an email alert?


    To set up an email alert based upon an opportunity, save your search and then click on “Save and Alert” in the pop-up. 

    These email alerts are based on searches for funding opportunities you have saved to your account. They are sent every Friday, and will contain any opportunities added to the database during the past week which match your search. 

    To create an email alert, you will need a Research Professional account. After logging in to your account, follow these steps:

    Navigate to the funding section. Type the terms you wish to search for into the opportunities search at the top of the page, selecting suggestions from the auto-suggester if you wish. Click on 'Search' to run.

    For more detailed information on building searches, see the funding section. Click on the 'Save' button above the opportunities search.

    A pop-up window will open. Enter a name for your search, then click 'Save and alert'. This will save the search to your account, and also set that search up to contribute to your weekly email alerts.

    You can have as many searches contributing to your weekly alert as you like. By default, the results of all of your opportunities alerts will be sent to you in a single email. See here for more detailed information on managing your alerts.
