How do I set alert subscriptions by role?

The role based alerts feature allows administrators to define the alerts that users will get when assigned to a project based upon their role on the project. Not every role in an organization needs to be notified of the same information. For example, project managers may need to see schedule change alerts that may be of little interest to project team members. Administrators set up role-based alerts which will be the default alerts for a user’s role on a project; however, users are able to override the default alert settings if they have been given the Edit Alert Subscriptions permission. This article describes how to set alert subscriptions by role.
