You can definitely use a valid email account for sending emails. It won't be too bad either.
Your users could reply to alerts now, so someone may be getting inundated with emails. Not sure if this is ideal in your organization and current governance. This may not be a big deal, as no one thinks to reply, but someone may notice a valid email account on there....
But you can style it
(from F12 console) Put a Notification on screen to play with it:
Change CSS with higher CSS Specificity,
to fixed it in the top right
The access request notifications are set at the root site in Site Permissions. In the Permissions tab you will see Access Request Settings. There you can set if you want to allow request and what email they are sent to.
I'd create an on creation workflow that does:
Add time to date, -2 days from the current item, date field. This is stored as a variable for you.
pause until the variable date
if current item status is not complete, send email, else end the workflow
This assumes you have some sort of status column that tracks the progress of the item. If you have a ...
You can create a SharePoint Designer workflow and let it automatically start on Item Add event.
Inside the workflow use Calculate action to find out the date the notification is suppose to be sent.
Now you can use Wait or Pause activity so that the workflow will wait
Next add a sent email action..
Unfortunately in Newsfeed, you are restricted to only to the below posted email notifications.
Since you are using SharePoint online, why not turn on Yammer instead of using Newsfeed features. Yammer is similar to Facebook for work and is being actively promoted by Microsoft instead of Newsfeed. At our organization and our client's, we actively use Yammer ...
If you have exchange server in place then it is very much easy to configure the SharePoint outgoing's email. You dont need to enter the credential to configure the outgoing email.
For sharepoint 2013:
Go to central admin > system settings > outgoing email settings
On the Outgoing E-Mail Settings page, in the Mail Settings section, type the SMTP server name ...
I'd use Flow with a custom RESTful API implementation. That custom RESTful service you create will be called by Flow whenever item is added to SP list and uses your chosen notification system to deliver push notification to the device, e.g. FCM
It's a pretty straight forward 2010 or 2013 workflow.
Store the date last modified,
Sleep for three days,
Check the if modified date has changed,
If not send an email, create a task, etc.
This is a 5 minute test example...
To answer your question:
OOTB -> No.
Workflow -> Yes.
The workflow can start on item-creation, send the mail to the first person, will be set on-hold-until-date (or for X weeks/days/hours) and send the mail to the second person.
You can check this link (docs.microsoft.com) for further information.
Within this documentation you will get a direction on how ...
what you have described as "yellow bar notification" is called Status bar
The Status bar can't be disabled or enabled using C# or Powershell Because it's not a Server Side property, it's JS SP.UI.Status class that defined in SP.Js / SP.Debug.Js
The alternative solutions to remove/disable the Status bar:
Remove a specific Status Bar
I prefer Site Workflow if you want to just send reminders to the group irrespective of any condition on the list items.
If you have to check any condition like sending a reminder from the date the flag has updated. Then use the logic as shown above in the list workflow.
Try to go through this logic:
Create a new variable as date called Today then set it to Current Date. (for calculating 5 weeks)
Create a new variable as date called Today_weekly then set it to Current Date. (for calculating weekly)
Create a new variable as boolean called 5weeks as then set it to No and (for tracking 5 weeks)
Use loop to Loop with condition ...
Will all of your items have values in those fields that match one of the conditions above? If you're mostly interested in ensuring that items only matching a specific condition trigger an email action, then I would consider changing your Else statement to reflect the opposite of your initial condition:
Else if Current Item:Status not equals Pending
This may not be possible. By default, all lists and libraries have their default "Alert me" and "Manage my alerts" section.
Even if you somehow disable/hide by CSS in the SitePages library, users would still be able to create them by navigating to "Manage my alerts" page.
So I wouldn't spend my time in implementing CSS to close all the loops for creating ...
Workflow is available for SharePoint Online as well. The only thing you need is download SharePoint Designer to make your own workflow. https://www.microsoft.com/en-sa/download/details.aspx?id=35491
As you are using SharePoint Online, you have access to workflow 2013 by default.
Raj's example is a very good one. I will provide a simple one to help you get ...
I switched Sharepoint Admin > Settings > Enterprise Social Collaboration from "Use Yammer.com" to "User Sharepoint Newsfeed", I waited 30 minutes, now the email notifications are working! Also, the Newsfeed app appeared in our App Picker.
Hope this helps someone else someday.
I faced similar problem in the last few weeks. SharePoint 2013 are using currently logged on users account to send invitation e-mails and if the user who logged on SharePoint has no permissions to send e-mail using relay, e-mail will not be sent. So I guess your farm account has relay permission and able to send e-mail but users not.
Here is my question ...
You can't send attachments out of the box, you'd have to do some custom code on the back end or use a third party solution. You can include a link to the content, though.
There is a method described here by Nullldata that walks you through which field values to use.
First remove the workflow from the SharePoint and Do the following Procedure:
1-Close SPD if it is open
2-Open My Computer
a. Click the address bar
4-Delete everything within this location
5-Click the address bar
%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache
I don't believe SharePoint online has any hooks into their Service Health for notifications other than the mobile app.
However, it appears if you're able to check the status codes returned from an http request to the site periodically, you could figure out whether the site was working.
This example is for powershell - see Jordan Mill's example:
Since this question has received quite a few views I thought I would be helpful and post a bit more of an explanation, I've learnt a bit more since I posted that question, but vividly remember the frustration of learning SP Workflows...
So I have expanded on Tarek's answer and provided a step-by-step instruction.
Open Sharepoint Designer (it's free to ...
