Immediate Alerts timer job "Sends out immediate and scheduled alerts." the documentation says. However, immediate is controlled by a timer job which runs every five minutes by default. So in your case - the possible series of actions is: Create folder Create alert Now these two actions happened within the same 5 minute period, and when the timer job ...

Workflow it is. A very simple one should suffice. In the explanation below I'm using SharePoint 2013 and Office 365, but it's absolutely the same in SP2010 or/and on premises, and even in SP2007 the process is very similar. You will need SharePoint Designer installed on your computer. Creating workflow: Open SharePoint designer Open your site Go to ...

I have achieved this with my custom alerts using nothing but a feature and a feature reciever. NB: Upgrading your solution package using STSADM (or deploying directly from Visual Studio 2010) will automatically upgrade all your assemblies and provisioned files and recycle your app pool, so all you need to do is connect your custom alert tempates. Here's ...

There is a lot of very useful information from Microsoft but SharePoint Alerts are counter-intuitive on a lot of levels. The number one rule when dealing with them is to never assume that they follow a predictable pattern because they do not and will surprise you every time. They also love to work perfectly for 100 days straight, then for no discernible ...

You CAN setup Alerts based on a view in WSS3/MOSS2007 onwards See "Setting up Alerts on a View of a List" You won't see every view and only the Gods seem to know exactly why you can see some views and not others. 1) It must have a where clause. All Items views don't show up in the list of views, and it's pointless to use an All Items view ...

The solution as i found recently, is to use the 2010 workflow to send the email, this is not bound by the restrictions that the 2013 workflow is in only sending to users known by the tenancy (i.e. those with accounts). In my case i did all the main bulk of the workflow in 2013 with loops and all the nice new features, then used a really simple parameter ...

SharePoint 2010/2013 has a notification support SP.UI.Notify.addNotification(strHtml, bSticky);You can use them. More info here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff407632(v=office.14).aspx

To trigger an email, most people will tell you how to create a workflow (probably with SharePoint Designer). That's quite easy, it would work in most cases. But it's not the purpose of workflows (+ they do appear in the UI, they're slow, ...) Another approach is to ask a developer to create a custom App (sorry we have to say "add-in" now). That app would ...

It is not possible to add event handlers to the user info list. Please see this following thread: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/81aae5ef-9621-48c5-ad52-706e5d6a0f05 That was me asking the question.

Setup Audit Logging in SharePoint 2010 to accomplish this. Visit this blog to see how this is accomplished. Check out the office site to see what all features are captured in Audit logging.

Why don't you use a SPAlertHandler to change how alerts work for this list? Then you can decide when an alert is sent or not in C# code. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb897791(v=office.14).aspx public override bool OnNotification(SPAlertHandlerParams ahp) { try { using (SPSite site = new SPSite(ahp.siteUrl + ahp.webUrl)) ...

On the task list, go to List Settings --> Advanced settings. There is an "Email Notification" setting that defaults to yes. Changing it to no should work for you. To do it programatically from your event receiver: SPList.EnableAssignToEmail = false; http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.splist.enableassigntoemail.aspx

I don't think you will be able to do this OOTB so you're going to have to look at something like. A workflow when adding new items using SharePoint Designer. An event receiver on the list A commercial solution such as (blatant plug - the first one is from my own company) Pentalogic Reminder Bamboo Alert Plus

The SPListEventReceiver.ListAdded was introduced in SharePoint 2010 and AFAIK it does not exist for SharePoint 2007. Maybe you can change your approach and register your event handler to a list type or a content type.

In order to send a notification email when a new document is uploaded, you can use the out of the box alerts provided by SharePoint. These alerts will send a notification mail to the individual on the event of new item creation in the document library. Use this link to create an alert.

The easy answer, for now, is to make a SharePoint 2010 workflow in SPD and use that to send the email to an external email address since the 2010 version (unlike 2013 version) can send to external emails. How do you send emails to external email address in sharepoint online workflows

Considered as answered. I've written two scripts for this: one to allow users to subscribe/unsubscribe to a list or library and one to show notifications whenever a new item was added to a list or library to which the user is subscribed to. Create a list to store your subscribers: You need to make a simple list at the top site level named "Subscribed ...

I did something like this for a client. My solution was made a web service. By this web service I was able to make an AJAX call and create an Alert code behind.

I assume this still works in SharePoint 2010: you should create a modified template file AlertTemplates_edited.xml in ...\14\TEMPLATE\XML (don't modify the original file - make a new version with a new name). You then need to use an stsadm command: stsadm -o updatealerttemplatefiles, and probably do an iisreset and bounce the timer service. Another way, ...

Please specify exactly what parameters have changed. Eg you changed to office 2010, but is outlook and SharePoint version the same? Also add a sceenshot showing the issue? I am still a bitnunclear on where SharePoint comes into the picture, other than being the trigger of the mail. This means your question is borderline off-topic. Depending on how you ...

Reading through the following two blog posts really helped answer how the email alert templates work (moreso the first): http://www.rightpoint.com/community/blogs/viewpoint/archive/2010/08/26/the-truth-about-how-daily-sharepoint-alerts-actually-work.aspx ...

I had the same problem, but this solution worked for me SP Designer WF Email doesn't go to SP Group All you have to do is: - Give everyone view acces to the group Go to the Group Settings, then, set everyone on "Who can view the membership of the group?", click OK - Add read permissions for the Sharepoint group to the site. Just be sure to give "read" ...

You can actually create a custom permission level that includes the Manage Alerts permission and then grant that to the individuals you want. Go into Site Actions > Site Permission and select Permission Levels from the Manage group on the ribbon. Click Add Permission Level and under Site Permissions select Manage Alerts and give the new Permission Level a ...

You can check the SMS service by hitting the test service button. It works over Office Mobile Service Protocol like mail uses SMTP. This OMS ...

The first thing to realize is that SharePoint has basically two methods of sending emails a) In response to an event on a page load/postback - such as The Alert Me confirmation message or Assigning a task (the one you are missing) Adding someone to a site. b) From the the SharePoint timer service which includes all the Alert Me type emails including ...

You can filter folders from alerts, but it's a little tricky. Here's how I've managed to accomplish it. First, create a custom content type based on the Folder content type (I named it "Managed Folder" in this case). Add that to any lists you want to be affected and make sure it is visible in the "New" button. Remove folder creation from the list in its ...

After relentlessly experimenting until my eyes bled object model code, I have determined that (in this particular situation anyways) you cannot create a folder without triggering an event handler, whether you use SystemUpdate or a custom event receiver. I also learned that the most commonly referenced ways to use a custom event receiver to prevent alerts ...

As a developer you have several ways to customize the alerts. In order to insert your company's logo, you will have to implement your own iAlertNotifyHandler. You can get an overview about your possibilities here: "msdn Library > Alerts in SharePoint Foundation" The article says nothing about SharePoint 2013, but when you look in the documentation for ...
