Customise the content of your email alerts


You can customise whether or not you receive email alerts for each of your watchlists, how many articles you receive per company and which types of topics you are interested in.

In order to ensure that you're receiving information that is relevant to you (and in the volume you would like) you may wish to customise the content of your email alerts.



Watchlist and Alert Settings

  • While viewing the 'Following' page when logged in to Artesian, select the watchlist you wish to customise and go to the 'Settings' tab.
  • Select ‘Change Watchlist and Alert Settings’ from the menu below.
  •  This will open up a pop-up box. To enable or disable email alerts for this watchlist, tick or untick the 'Send alerts for this watchlist' option.
    • If alerts for this watchlist are switched on, you can also choose how many articles for each company will be included in your alerts (between 1 and 5).
      • In the event that more articles have been published for a company in the last 24 hours than you have specified here, you will receive the four most relevant articles (according to their relevance in the company's newsfeed).
  • You can also choose whether or not to receive monthly company data change alerts for this watchlist from this page.
  • Once you are satisfied with the settings within this box, click the 'Save Changes' button.




Topic Filters

  • Topic filters allow you to receive only the news that you want to see for your companies. This is particularly useful for large businesses which are mentioned in a wide range of news, or when you are only interested in certain types of news (e.g: winning awards or expanding into new premises) for your companies.

  • From the 'Settings' page of a watchlist, click on the 'Edit Topic Filters (__ selected) option in the menu to open up a list of topics available. Tick the boxes next to the topics you are interested in. You can also click on the arrow next to each topic to drill down to more specific subtopics.

  • Once you're satisfied with the topics you have selected, click the 'Save Changes' button to apply them to this watchlist. These filters will take effect immediately and will be applied to both your newsfeed and any future email alerts.
  • For more information on Topic Filters, please see this article.



Other Settings

From the 'Settings' page you can also choose to apply country filters to a watchlist to allow English-language news from other countries, share your watchlist with a colleague (allowing them to receive the same alert as you for your companies) or view the latest alert sent to you.

In the list of companies below, you can enable or disable individual companies from appearing in your alerts by sliding the bar in the "News Alerts" column to On or Off.
