i have created a document library with some folders and files. I added an alert for some users, then when i upload 2 documents in the sharepoint library it sent around 72 emails instead of the details of the 2 document that i just uploaded. Is this supposed to happen like this ?. Is there any way that we can customize it ?

enter image description here

  • on what event you have triggered email? Change the 'Change Type' property from library alert setting and select 'New items are added'. – Rishi Jagati Dec 7 '16 at 6:24
  • i have added it on all changes – Rinu Dec 7 '16 at 6:55
  • but still there shouldnt be 72 emails right – Rinu Dec 7 '16 at 6:56
  • that depends, if you are doing some operation on the list/library items using workflow. like update/delete items. If NOT then it should not fire that many emails. Does Change type property works in you case? – Rishi Jagati Dec 7 '16 at 7:03
  • i have updated the question with the alert configuration page. there are no workflows associated with this document library. – Rinu Dec 7 '16 at 7:05
