How do I setup an email alert for specific people on certain topics/keywords in an announcement? Right now anyone I assign will get an email alert for every announcement (which I don't want)


Announcement - Topic 1; emails person A
Announcement - Topic 2; emails person B

You can either create a designer work flow or write a event receiver for new item added event on this list to send out emails. I don't think there is OOO option for this.

  • Is there a step by step guide somewhere? I tried the workflow and it didn't work so I'm sure I created it incorrectly. – kcam Sep 20 '16 at 11:19
  • You can check this sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/77617/… to get started and then add a condition before sending the mail. – Sudhakar Sep 21 '16 at 10:10
