I have a list where regular people are alerted via standard alerts while the inputter of an item is notified of modifications with a SPD workflow.

Is it possible to activate in some way the Alert Me standard function when a user inputs an entry?


As a short answer: No,

In Alert Me, you must know who will receive the alerts beforehand. by defining his username or e-mail address at Send Alerts To field.

So The easiest workaround as you did is adding an action Send Email in your workflow to send an email as an alert to User who created the current item.
