When i try to make an alert me for specific users in a list i get the following:

Error You can not create alerts for lists where users can only read their own items .

Correlation ID : 34f94da8-7571-4a39-9963-5adc27a133fb

The lists have specific permissions as the data is highly sensitive. So making a custom view isnt an option as the data can be found via search.

Any creative minds out there?

You cant get this done OOTB, the only way you can fix OOTB is increase their permission level to read to all.

  • you can create a workflow which sent the notification when the item added.
  • Or you can try to create a event receiver for same.
  • Another approach is subscribing to the RSS feed of list.
