How to Edit an IFLP Alert Profile

Users who have created an IFLP Alert profile at any point in time have the ability to manage their IFLP Alert notifications through MyHein. To access this feature, users must be signed in to their MyHein account created under the same email address as their IFLP Alert Profile. Access the edit portal from within your MyHein account or from anywhere in HeinOnline.

IFLP Alert Admins

Users affiliated with an institution that subscribes to Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals may request to become administrators so that they can manage their faculty or staff’s IFLP Alert notifications.


Request to be an IFLP Admin


Once authorized, administrators must sign into their MyHein account created under that same email address to access the profile portal. Administrators can then find the portal within their MyHein account or from anywhere in HeinOnline. 

Authorized administrators will see all faculty or staff members who have an IFLP Alert profile listed, with the option to edit their individual notifications.
