I am not able to change the direction of popups/Alerts in Arabic culture which should be RTL direction.
Rest of my application is changed in above culture, only problem is with popups and alerts.
Thanks in advance.
our webmaster added a group and a few users on a page via Actions -> Alert Me -> Send Alerts To
the users are also viewable via Site Actions -> Site Settings -> User alerts
all neccessary users or groups are added for alerting.
even if everything looks okay, on just one site the alerting does not work when a user uploads a new document.
question: does anybody have any clue what i could test or do to correct this?
as i told, the same users work on another site, so it's not possible, that users or groups are not mail enabled.
thanks for any help.
OK, I must be missing something here.
If I turned on Alerts for one library and then decide I don't want to get the alerts anymore, how do I turn them Off?
At some point over the last 2 weeks, the alert functionality in our MOSS 2007 environment stopped working. Users will receive the "You have setup a new alert" email when configuring a new Alert, but not any actual alerts when an item is added/changed.
I investigated the Timer Service on the front end web server and noticed it was Stopped. I restarted the Service and some of the users received upwards of 200 backlogged alerts.
I can understand why the user received so many alerts, these would be the alerts that SHOULD have been sent over the last 2 weeks. I just wanted to make sure that this is normal behavior. If the service fails, then the alert emails are set to
a type of "pending" status until the service is restarted? Is this accurate or am I misunderstanding something.
Is there any way to send e-mail alerts to a specific user wihtout assigning them the task or having them subscribe to the list.

I use the OOB Workflow approval to approve items in a document library. Once the items are approved I want to send out an email alert to a group of people with "read" access. The problem is that the email alerts don't fire. I even changed the alerts to fire
on "All Changes", but still nothing coming through. I assume this is because of the workflow approval and perhaps that the event doesn't fire when an item gets published after approval?
But how can I get my readers to be notified of newly published (and approved) items? There must be a way of doing it?
