Create Community Keyword Alerts

There is a new section called Community Keyword Alerts under Community Settings.

The list of all Keyword Alerts is displayed here. To activate an alert, toggle On and to turn off alerts for a keyword set, toggle Off.

Toggle On: When a user makes a post or adds a comment in a community channel, if that message contains a word that is in the associated set of keywords, then an alert is triggered. The alert is sent to owners and moderators of the channel. 

Toggle Off: If you turn a keyword alert off, no email will be sent if a post is made that matches the keyword set.
