Set up alert to send to site Members group?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I would like to set up an alert on a discussion list, to send an alert to all site members when a new discussion thread is started.  In the new alert form, in the Users field look up directory, it doesn't show site collection groups, and when I try typing it in directly into the Users field and checking, it doesn't find a match.  Is there a way to do this without making the SP group an AD group?  I would think since each individual user in a SharePoint group can have email sent to them that the group could. Thanks for any suggestions.  I don't want to have to enter in all the users individually.

User Alert Management for a specific list versus entire SharePoint site?

It seems that to be able to manage User Alerts, one must have Full Access to the entire SharePoint site - and then use => Site Settings > User Alerts. Ideally, I would like to be able to grant access to users to only be able to manage alerts for a specific list. Is this possible (without having to do any programming) and, if so, how? If such access is only available at the site level, I will simply create a Permission Level that allows one to only "Manage Alerts" Thanks in advance for any assistance. Dave

New Item Added to List/Library trigers Alert to non-AD Security Group

I am trying to implement an alert when a new item is added to a list. Idealy this alert would be sent to either a SharePoint Group or a AD Distribution Group. I do not have access/authroization to create security groups. The research I have found so far tells me that I can only add AD users and AD mail-enabled security groups through the alert GUI. My questions is first is this a valid finding? Second, if I create a custom workflow can I have the workflow triger on new item added and have it send a notification to the specified SharePoint/Distribution group? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

The Group Work Site template has the "What's New" web part on it's home page and I have the follow


I can't find that web part as something I can use elsewhere? As in, I can't add that web part on other pages made even on the same site. What would be ideal is to have that web part available to add as needed to other sites/pages of course. As it stands, for me it seems the only place I can use that web part is on the home page of a new "Group Work Site", i hope that I'm wrong. I've tried exporting the web part, but the importing does nothing when trying to import it to other sites, of course other 2010 sites. Please let me know how I may add that web part to my available to use web parts please.

a primary AD group should not be added to a SharePoint Site Group.....



as per http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136%28office.12%29.aspx and the problem we are facing:

Primary group membership In Active Directory, each user has a primary group. When the LDAP Role provider is used with Active Directory, a user's primary group is not included in the list of roles for the user. By default, a user's primary group is the Domain Users group. As a result, the Domain Users group is not a good choice to add to a SharePoint group when you are provisioning permissions because unless the user's primary group is changed, no user is returned in the membership of that role. For more information, see the primaryGroupID attribute in User Security Attributes.


My requirement is:-

I have  added  user 'us1' in an ADGroup  'A

Is it possible to add a custom menu group to the Site Actions button?


I know I can use a Custom Action to add a new menu item to my Site Actions button .

Is it possible for me to add a new menu group to the Site Actions button? For example, like the OOB Site Settings menu group, which then extends out to offer additional items such as "Modify All Site Settings" etc.

How to get the permissions of a user or group that has "Limited Access" to a site



For a user or group that has "Limited Access" to a site, I'd like to be able to find all of the libraries, documents, etc that that user or group has been given permissions to.  I believe that I could accomplish this by iterating over all of the lists of the site, and then over all of the list items of each list, and checking if, for that list or list item, inheritance is broken and that user or group has been granted access.  However, I am hoping there is a cleaner, quicker alternative in which I don't have to iterate over all of the site content.

If that's not possible, I may be able to accomplish mostly what I need if I could find all of the site content which has unique permissions (and then simply iterate over that content to see if the user or group has been given permissions).

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
