Hoping for some insight, is it possible to set up users to get email alerts from a list and somehow stop them from being able to actually see anything on the actual SharePoint site?
I tried the route of not giving the users site permission and setting them up with email alerts, but they don't get anything after the initial "set up" email, so my current theory is they need some sort of permission to actual receive the emails, based on re-doing the alert, asking them to check their spam/junk folders. (however if that is wrong, feel free to correct me).
Essentially, without getting into too much detail, I'm setting up an attendance log, and the goal is to have specific users from specific teams get an email alert when someone on their team calls out and is put down on the list, but we don't want them to have full access to the list of people who have called out for the day
Unfortunately, I'm not at all involved with our Company IT, so I'm sort of out of my element here, but I figure if I at least know this is possible, and how, I can kindly communicate that to our SP IT group for their assistance/rescue, hah.
Edit 1: Cant believe I didnt mention this in my original post, but I dont have access to SP Designer, and cannot get access to it (and IT wont pick it up)
