How to be Notified when MOS Notes are Updated

We update our My Oracle Support (MOS) Notes regularly.  How do you find out when a new note is published or an existing one is updated?

There is a new MOS feature -- Hot Topics -- which emails you when notes on your Favorites list are updated.

Here's what to do:

  1. Mark the document of interest as a Favorite (by clicking the yellow star to the left of the document title). 
  2. From the More dropdown, choose Settings.
  3. On the left, under Personalization, choose Hot Topics E-Mail.
  4. Select the options that meet your requirements.
  5. Click the Apply button to save your changes.

In this example (above), I am requesting a daily email (in Plain Text format) listing any notes on my Favorites list that have been updated since the last email was sent. An email will only be sent if at least one note has changed.

You can also specify products if you want to be notified of updates to any notes in a specific  product area.

New Defects, Patches, and FAQs

Although this mechanism does not tell you when new WebCenter Content bugs or patches are published, you can find out by adding the appropriate KM Note as a MOS Favorites and consequently receiving notification emails when they are updated. Here are a couple of examples:

This example screenshot shows content from a Hot Topics notification email advising me that these two notes (as well as a couple of other important notes) have been updated:


Typically, most support notes are updated to reflect the addition of a new patches or other important links to objects that support a new or modified feature or component.
