Alert emails and document id URL

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
With the document ID's we now have a direct URL to each document (for example http://server/_layouts/docidredir.aspx?id=whatever-x-x). But when library alerts are sent or the user uses the "Send To / Email a link" function from a document you still get the doc library/folder URL.  Is there a way to change the alert and email a link function to use the new document id url?

Troubleshooting Alert Emails

Hi, I have a case where one particular user is not receiving alert emails for a particular doc library.  Any help or further insight will be appreciated. Here's some background and steps I've already taken to investigate/correct the issue: MOSS 2007 SP 2 farm, multiple WFE servers, MOSS 2007 SP1 was the original install to this farm. This user is able to receive the confirmation email after the alert is initially created.  It is just the alert emails that are not being received.  The alert was created using the immediate notification setting. This same user, user A,  is also able to receive the confirmation email and subsequent alert emails from another site collection (different content DB) on the same web app of the same farm.  That alert was created using the immediate notification setting.  Another user, user B, is able to receive the confirmation email and subsequesnt alert emails from the doc library that user A is not. User A has contribute permissions on the doc library the alert was created for, User B has full-control permissions. Executed the query "select * from eventcache where eventdata is not null" against the related content database.  The query returned 0 results. Verified that the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service is running on the index server and all WFE servers. Checked the Timer Job Status

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.

SharePoint Document Workspaces for Developers

Office 2003 is being released this month, and a cast of supporting applications is already available. One of these is Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, the free team add-on for Windows Server 2003.

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.
