Following documents

SharePoint 2013 has the ability to follow documents to track their updates in your newsfeed. The main difference between email alerts and following documents is that following a document adds a link to this document in your newsfeed and provides notifications of all document changes via your newsfeed.

Following selected document

  1. Open your SharePoint library. In our example it is called "Document Library - Sample"
