Manage alert folders

An alert folder, also known as an alert category, typically corresponds to the type of alerts or source of alerts that are published. For example, folder types can include Weather Alerts, IT Alerts, Commander/CEO Alerts, and Daily News Alerts. Every alert must be associated with an alert folder. Grouping alerts by folder has many benefits, including the ability to use templates to establish a common appearance for all alerts within a folder, facilitate end user subscriptions by folder, and restrict operator publishing privileges to specific folders.
