Alert email not going out


I set up an alert as shown below. It is not working. It only worked when I clicked the option to send "links to sheet & fields". However, I do not want to do that because the sheet has confidential information & the recipients only want to get a simple message with a link to a dynamic view I built separately. I have checked every conceivable setting to ensure the email goes out, but to no avail. What am I doing wrong? I have never encountered this issue with any of my other Smartsheets...
