Modifying Alert Subscription Template

  • Modifying Alert Subscription Template TheVillageIdiot

    Is there a way I can customize the alert subscription email sent to users when they subscribe (or their subscription added by System Administrator) to a list for Alerts?

    I've gone through Microsoft.Sharepioint.ApplicationPages.SubNewPage but the method that adds alerts is too cryptic :(

  • If you want to change it for all users in your entire SharePoint Farm, you'd want to make a copy of the Alerts .xml file in the 12-Hive\Templates directory, then update the file as you would like it to display.

  • It's AlertTemplate.xml @ [12|14]\TEMPLATE\XML

    Cheers

  • I'm pretty new to sharepoint-development, so I thought I'd check real quick with the gurus in here. I've been given the task of building a replacement for the built-in Alert Me feature. The main reason for this is to allow for alerting members of a role with a forms authenticated sharepoint. This is where you guys come in. I know you can build an immediate Alert Me function by creating list item event receivers. However, if I wanted to create the summary-feature (daily/weekly notifications) - what would be the best way to go about this? With very limited knowledge, all I could think

  • Has anyone implemented IAlertUpdateHandler interface successfully? Actually I've to suppress alert subscription notification email. I've following code in PreUpdate method: public bool PreUpdate(SPAlert a, SPWeb web, bool newAlert, string properties) { if (CHECK_IF_SUPPRESSING_EMAIL) { a.Update(false); } else { a.Update(); } return true;//have tried returning false also } but I'm getting StackOverFlow exception as the method is called recursively. Any clues about what is going wrong? EDIT:- I've tried using PostUpdate also but got same results.

  • The alerts are working, but for some reason the "Send e-mail when ownership is assigned" on a task list is not working.

  • is causing this behavior? I can change the code to avoid it if I can figure out why it is happening. Is there any way through the SharePoint UI or APIs to "release" the document so that the original... into it. Either way, it then opens the file in Excel. The code to open the file is some client-side script that figures out the location of the Excel file in SharePoint, sets an href variable to that URL...) { objExcel.ActiveWindow.Close(false); objExcel.Application.Quit(); alert("This workbook is opened for editing by another user. Try again later."); } Usually the above works just fine
