Is it possible to notify users when new content is added to a SharePoint List? I need to do it programmatically. For example, a notification in the top left corner stating "You have new content added.". Once the content is stored in the SharePoint List, users will then be notified when they visit the homepage.
I have created a SharePoint List named UsersNotification with two columns, a ContentID column and a UserID column. Whenever a current user clicks on "View content" in a particular page in my site, the ContentID and UserID will be stored in the UsersNotification list. This will check if the user has viewed the new content or not. If the user hasn’t viewd the new content, then a notification will be displayed as mentioned above. If the user has viewed the new content, then no notification will be displayed
As of now, I have both IDs, but how can I notify the users?
