How to add multiple users to SharePoint alerts?

Copper Contributor

I am not sure why but when I attempt to create alerts for certain documents SharePoint does not enable me to create a list of users to share the alerts with, instead it only allows me to alert myself. I am unable to edit the list to even change my email to another. 


If anyone knows how to resolve this issue please let me know.

@_MaherS Do you have full control permissions on these files? As a site owner, I am able to add alerts on file and other users to same alert:
