Manually ungroup an alert

Sometimes, alerts you thought were similar aren't. You can remove a grouped alert record from the primary alert.

Before you begin

Grouped alerts are displayed under the primary alert in the alert list view, and you can see a count of related alerts. This task removes an alert from the related list under the primary alert and updates the primary and any related lists.
