I want to store few documents in document library and after upload the document I want to give expire data for each document. Now here I want some alert mail from SharePoint before the particular document will expire.

Please advice.

You can create custom timer job to monitor expire dates in document library and send alert email to customers.

Guide to writing timer jobs in SharepPoint:


MSDN tutorial "How to: Create a Web Application-Scoped Timer Job":


  • I don't have access for VS & InfoPath. Any other option like SharePoint Designer etc. I just saw we can use Reminder 365 web part for alert mail and its free I think. Oct 26, 2014 at 9:14
