When a user makes a post or comments containing a keyword from the keyword set
- Alerts are sent to moderators and channel owners.
- They are not sent to Community Managers by default
If a Community Manager wants to receive alerts for that channel, they need to join that channel and promote themselves to a moderator or owner. Then they will receive notifications for that channel. They need to join and promote in every channel they want to receive notifications for all channels.
Here is an example of the email alert notification-
