Project Description

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 Alert Group link on the lists Actions menu and on the items contextual menu. It works exactly like the Alert Me 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.
