Hi, @JosephAI-6182 ,
If you mean the out-of-box alert message which you can set directly from the ribbon, you cannot customize the notification message. The available approach to create customize alert notification will like below:

  1. Use workflow or flow to send the alert email with the body you like.

  2. Create a custom code solution using event receiver or other tools.

And you can vote in UserVoice for this idea so MS get your thoughts.

Thanks JerryXu-MSFT,

Yes, it is customizing the notification message. I have done research and most of the SP devs ignore in updating the setup alert email. We just want to modify it if not not turn it off. Thanks
