Alerts

JADE loves keeping you upto date with the law that is relevant to you – it is your personal information butler. JADE Alerts are delivered to thousands of inboxes around the country every morning. This short tutorial will show you how to do the basic stuff like create and edit Alerts in JADE. In 9 short steps it will also show you some new features, such as setting alerts based on citations, search terms and sections of legislation.

1. Where do your Alerts live?

If you already receive alerts it means that you have a JADE account. If you want to receive Alerts you need to create your free account by following this link https://jade.barnet.com.au/Jade.html#a=registration To navigate to the Alerts section of your JADE Account:

2. Alerts
You will then see the option to create an Alert.

2. Create a new alert from My Jade

When you select “create a new alert” you will have the options to create an alert based on text, topic or collection. You can also combine these categories for e.g. If you set an alert using the text “slip and fall” the topic negligence and the collections Victorian Supreme Court AND NSW Supreme Court you would receive and alert whenever the VSC or NSWSC handed down a negligence case involving a slip and fall.

You can use the same search logic in Alerts as you do in the main search bar if you choose to use the Text field.
– To find an exact phrase use double quotation marks “Medical negligence”
– If results must include a keyword or phrase use a plus sign ( + ) immediately in front of the word or phrase.
– If results must exclude a keyword or phrase use a minus sign ( – ) immediately in front of the word or phrase.
