User Alerts don't work


Hi there

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.

Alerts - 1 user fails with "PermissionMask check failed. asking for 0x00000055, have 0x3C4312EF", ot

I have set Alerts for 3 users on a Document Library in our Team Site in a MOSS 2007 environment.  Alerts go out for every other person I set alerts for, with the exception of this person.  Our Exchange Admin tracked down the Alert email and saw that while everyone else was listed, this person was not.  At the same time I turned on Verbose logging for the log files and found the PermissionMask failure.  The problem is I cannot figure out why this person is failing this check. This person happens to be a member of our IT team, as are the other people I added Alerts for.  I should also note that this problem occurs whether I add the alert for this person, or this person adds the alert themselves.  I have checked the permissions on the Library and they are inherited from the Site level.  When I check the permissions on the Site level, the IT team has Contribute permissions, I did then check the AD Security Group to be sure that this person is in the group, and they are. Any ideas as to why this would happen for this person only?  This person can access, and add content, to the Library which puzzles me more.  My next test will be to add this permission to the Site permissions explicity with Full Control to see if that matters. In Googling for this, I find a number of PermissionMask posts, but none that seem to address this specific pro

Can not send SharePoint alerts to the user outside domain

The SharePoint alerts would not go outside company domain. We have many partners users (some have active directory account and some are only in exchange 2007 contacts) and none of them recieve alerts. The internal users recieve alerts no problem there. I have setup relay in exchange 2007. From SharePoint webserver I can telnet/smtp to exchange on port 25 and able to send message. Not sure where  is the problem? can any one help?

Disable or modify user alerts


Question from my staff was how can we limit an internal site from sending out alerts for all changes made from a site.  We only want to give users on certain sites the ability to view their own alerts when they post under their name and not view when others post to the site?  Reason being we are limiting users to view only what we want them to view and not all views are for everyone.  That is why we created certain pages to allow users access to see what is available for them or their group.  As it turns out if we limit them to this and they setup an alert to view all changes they bypass our security restrictions to view only what we want them to view.  They need to be able to contribute to the site and we don't want to create two sites for the same purpose.  That would just make matters worse so its best to keep all users adding to a single task database then having two of them use the same functionality.  There are other reason we don't want to create other sites as well but I just wanted to see if anyone out there has used been able to find out if alerts are manageable from the administrator point of view.

I know I can view all alerts for the site and remove those that user create but that defeats the purspose of having them set up alerts on their own.  We just want to disable the feature that any changes on the list ar

Problem with end user not being able to create alerts

I created a team site as a sub site off our main site. I broke inheritance from the parent and added a new group and assigned that group a custom permission that has create alerts permission. Problem is when the end user goes to create alerts it throws an access denied error after clicking okay on the new alert page. I've checked and rechecked permissions and everything looks to be setup correctly?

Creating Alerts on Behalf of another User


Hi all,

Was wondering if i create an alert for multiple users at the same time and select to only send alert when "Someone else changes an event created by me", is sharepoint smart enough to know who to route alert to?

For example, I create an alert all at once for john, joe, sal and mike and select to only "send when someone else changes an event created by me." If Sal created an item and it was changed by Mike, will SharePoint know to send the alert only to Sal?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!


Creating an Email Alerts to Task Assigned user to edit the task from Email


When we use the out of the box wf in sharepoint lets say Document approval then it sends an email to the assigned user where user can edit the task with in email, they don't have to come back to Sharepoint to edit the task.

I am looking for a way so that i can send email to the user with the controls in the custom task forms. So that they can just Complete the task from email. they dont have to come back to sharepoint task list to edit and complete the task.

Is there any workaround for this.


Sharepoint 2007 - Update Alerts Going To Random User


Hi, I am new to this forum am relativly new to sharepoint. I have set up a Task page and enabled alerts for assigned to. This is working correctly and only the user the task is assigned to gets the initail email. However when anyone updates the task the email goes to a number of users not just the assigned uers. There are no workflows setup. The below notification should only have gone to the user without the line through there name. Is there anyway to change this?

Thank you

MS SQL Server: Disconnect Users From Database - Kill User Session

If you ever wanted to restore your database from a SQL backup file (.bak), but there are still users connected to your database, the backup operation will fail causing the error: Exclusive access could not be obtained because the database is in use.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

How to track the changes of user contacts(colleagues) by using SharePoint API

We might have seen colleague tracker web part which keep tracks the changes made in our contacts/colleagues details like profile/lists/sites. The same tracking mechanism can be implemented by using MOSS API in any custom web part/ web control/ feature/web service...

UserProfile.GetColleagueChanges is the method which returns all changes happened with the contacts, this method also accepts a Query (UserProfileChangeQuery) where we can specify different parameters to filter the changes

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

Building Re-Usable ASP.NET User Control and Page Libraries with VS 2008


I am having problems with a user control. I want my solution to have a separate project for holding my user controls.

The main project can get a reference to this user control project and can import this user control dll into my main project.

Multiple Instances of User Control


I have a user control that I place on a page severl times.  When I make a selection on a ddl in one one control the SelectedIndexChanged event fires for all the control on the page for that ddl.  So I get duplication of an insert that I do.  Is there a way to make sure these events are isolated so this doesn't happen.


How to let user edit selected gridview columns, not entire row



I've got a gridview I would like to let the user edit a couple of columns.  Seems like everything I'm coming across so far makes the entire row editable.  

Hopefully the solution isn't too complicated.  Can someone point me in the right direction?
