Invalid recipients in Alerts and Actions rule

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

We have lots of alerts/actions/notification rules setup across lots of sheets.  When I delete a user due to employee termination, then I get this message:

"Invalid recipients in Alerts and Actions rule"

I don't want to have to dig through dozens of sheets to remove the people, how can I do this on a mass scale?

    Hi Ian,

    Currently, there isn't a way to batch remove them from these alerts. You'll want to go to the sheets referenced and remove them from the alerts on a sheet-by-sheet basis.

    When you have a moment, please submit a product enhancement request using the form under Quick links on the right of the community site to let our Product team know that you'd like to see this feature added to a future version of Smartsheet.
