You can create an application that alerts users to important annotations through the My Alerts portlet or through e-mail. When you create a project with annotations, include the WebSphere Dashboard Framework Alerts Module and Alerts Scheduler feature sets to enable alerting. Then in the Manage Alerts portlet, enable the Annotation Alert here.
Creating comments that send alerts
After creating a comment, click the "Find People" button to choose whom to notify about the new comment.
Receiving an alert through the My Alerts portlet
When a user opens the My Alerts portlet, annotation alerts are shown, as well as other alerts.
A user can click View Details in the context menu to get more information about a comment.
Creating comments through e-mail
You can also send alert annotations by e-mail. To minimize the disruption to users, the Alerts engine compiles multiple annotations in one e-mail and sends an e-mail about those annotations only once.
