HP TRIM Tip: Alerts

HP TRIM’s Alerts feature is available to all Users. It allows you to define sets of criteria for information that you are interested in and prompts TRIM to send you an E-mail notification whenever a record meets the criteria (e.g. if you are a Human Resources Manager and want to be alerted each time a user creates a new container under the classification of “Recruitment”).

Alerts can be triggered by various events in HP TRIM including notifying Users when records have been created, modified or destroyed and when content has been added or removed from containers. You might also set up an alert on a particular electronic document record so that you are notified when another user adds a new revision.

If your Administrator has enabled Alerts in your TRIM dataset, you can access and create Alerts via your Tools menu.
