Advanced Alert is a Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 solution which allows users having the ManageAlerts permission to create alerts on list or item for SharePoint groups.
In using the Alert Me
feature on SharePoint lists or items, you can only create alerts for yourself or for several users. No way to create alerts for SharePoint groups. Advanced Alert adds a
link on the lists Actions
menu and on the items contextual menu. It works exactly like the
links except that the Alert Group
links display a page where you can create alerts for groups. Only groups having permissions to see the item/list are selectable.
Unzip the runtime binary file on the server and launch the setup file.
