What records are considered by EC alerts and notifications job?
Employee Central - Alerts and Notifications
The EC Alerts and Notifications job will consider all the records which was updated since the last EC Alerts and Notifications job ran.
i.e. If the job is to consider the record and evaluate the record based on the Alert Rules, then the record should be updated after the time the last EC Alert and Notificaitons job ran, for it to be considered by the job when it runs next day.
This job is not restricted to check only latest records. It will check all records that were "Last Modified" between the job last run time and the day it next runs.
