I have a list with a people or group field, it is set up to allow only one person or group to be selected.
I would like a user to receive a notification when a list item is assigned to them.
I tried the OOTB list alert which allows me to select a Change Type - Only send me alerts when/Existing items are modified. But this is too general, as I'm not interested in tracking when any field changes only the 'assigned to' field.
I also tried making a custom list view with only the 'assigned to' field selected in the hope that the notification would only be trigged when the 'assigned to' field is modified (i.e. the item is reassigned) but this was not successful either.
Am I on the right path? Could a better configuration of an alert, perhaps combined with a custom view be the answer?
I also noticed that there is a useful-looking option in List/Advanced Settings/E-mail Notification (send an e-mail when ownership is assigned or when an item has been changed) - but the '...or when an item has been changed' part seems too general for my needs.
Thanks for any suggestions. David
