How can I allow my users to Create a complete alert (where you can set a list to send) without giving the Control Total?

They are in the "`Contribute" group but It allows them only to alert them-self.

By default, The Users with contribute permission Levels can only Create Alert but they can't Manage Alerts - Manage alerts for all users of the Web site.

To allow the Contributors users to Manage alerts, you should do the following:

  • Go to Site Setting > Users and Permissions > Site Permissions.
  • From the above ribbon, Click on Permission Levels.

  • Click on Contribute.

  • Below site permission, Check Manage Alerts as shown below

Note: you can copy the Contribute Permission level to build and customize your own permission level, then use the customized permission level as you prefer.

  • Thanks a lot, I admire your you a lot for using this plateforme.
