Setting up email alerts with PolicyMogul is simple:

You can create email alerts for each topic you create. After you add the keywords you want to include and exclude for your topic, you'll have the option to choose what kind of email alerts you want to receive.

Choosing the right frequency for email alerts

You can choose from three different alert frequencies in PolicyMogul:

Immediate alerts

You'll receive an email alert as soon as a piece of content that matches the keywords or phrases in your topic is added to PolicyMogul. We recommend immediate alerts for topics containing only mentions of your organisation name, or other highly-focussed keywords or phrases.

We would not suggest including broad keywords such as 'tax', 'plastic' or 'education' in immediate email alerts, because you'll receive too much content. For these broader interests, best practice is to create a separate topic with a daily or weekly digest.

Daily digest (on by default)

You'll receive a daily digest of all content that matches the keywords or phrases in your topic, at the time you choose. We recommend daily digests for topics which represent your core interests, such as keywords which describe your industry and competitors.

Weekly digest

You'll receive a weekly digest of all content that matches the keywords or phrases in your topic, on the day and time you choose. We recommend weekly digests for topics which represent your peripheral interests, to ensure you don't miss anything whilst avoiding information overload.


Note that digest emails are only sent if new relevant content has been added to PolicyMogul since your last email alert


For each email alert, you can also choose which resources you want to include:

  • Key updates

  • Consultations

  • Legislation

  • Hansard content

  • Questions and answers

  • Tweets [Mogul plan subscribers only]
