I'm having a problem to automatically add alert. I have a list "ListA" where I add new records. This records have address email field. I try to create workflow which use this address email to send alerts. Without any positive results.

ListA - users
ListB - some records
ListC - other records

I want to user from ListA will be inform when something on ListB or ListC will be added, changed.

I this possible using only workflow?

Thanks, Ripperus

you could use a custom SPItemEventReceiver that fires on the ItemAdded and ItemUpdated events on ListB and ListC.

public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties) { EmailUsersInListA(); }

public override void ItemUpdated(SPItemEventProperties properties) { EmailUsersInListA(); }

The following link contains examples from MSDN showing how to add event recievers: MSDN examples
