You can control whether or not you receive notifications for your changes by adjusting your personal settings.
If you’ve set up an alert with yourself as the recipient, but you're not notified when you edit the sheet, you’ll want to turn on notifications for changes you make.
- Click Account > Personal Settings.
- Select Notifications in the Personal Settings window.
- Check Include my changes in sheet notifications (under sheet Change Notification Settings).
Include my changes in sheet notifications will only filter out change-based alerts, and does not filter out time-based automation.
