Custom Alerts email

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Is there a way to change the subject of an alert email based on the email address it is going to?
For example if the email address contains "@yahoo.com" the subject should read "Yahoo Alert" and if it contains "@live.com" the subject should read "Live Alert".

Custom Email Alerts using Helpdesk Template in MOSS 2007

  
Hi All,

I recently installed the Helpdesk template on our SharePoint 2007 Server but I want to find out how to set up alerts so that when a job request has been assigned to person X an email will automatically be sent to that person. Currently you can custimise the Service Request list so that whenever changes are made to it an email can be sent to a designated person, however, what we require is an email being sent to the service request owner.

I presume this will require custom coding but is there third party plug-ins which provide this functionality? As i have never programmed for MOSS i was wondering how much of a task is it to provide this functionality?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Rabi



Custom email alerts SharePoint 2007

  

I'm developing a SharePoint system and I was wondering how to go about designing a custom email alert for new/updated/ tasks e.g. so as one person is assigned a task, an email alert is sent out. I know SP sends a standard default template design, however after speaking with colleagues, they have found this design to be confusing and often boring - it doesnt make the task/issue stand out from the hundreds of emails they deal with everyday. How to I design my own custom email alert - the layout, content, frequency, granualrity etc?


How to send Viewers email alerts on approved items

  

Hi,

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?


how to Customize Alerts email

  
In the alert email directly under the "To" field there is section that shows a sharepoint image, the site name, list name and list url.I know that in the alertstemplates.xml file this line in the beginning of file controls it: <Header> <HTML> <![CDATA[<html dir = $Resources:core,PageDirection;> <head> <base href="]]> </HTML> <GetVar Name="SiteUrl" URLEncodeAsURL="TRUE" /> <HTML> <![CDATA["> What I want to do is remove the url from that and leave the image, site and list name.anyone know how to accomplish this?

Cannot create email alerts for multiple users

  
Hello, I created an email alert for a document in a library. In the "Send Alerts To" box, I added multiple user names separated by semicolons and saved the alert. However, when I open the alert again, only my user name appears and the additional user names are gone. Why is this happening and how do I fix this problem?  Thank you in advance.

Custom Email Alert template creating links to DispForm.aspx

  
I have a requirement to customise the alert template for a standard blog post list. To do this I: 1. Created a copy of alertstemplate.xml 2. Copied the genericList alert template node and customised 3. Registered the new template file against the site collection, iisreset and finally assigned the new Alert template to the list, when alerts are created the custom template is emailed. The problem now arises that the 'View <Post Title>' in the toolbar section now creates a hyperlink to http..../Lists/Posts/Dispform.aspx?ID=xx rather than post.aspx. I have checked using sharepoint designer that the list supporting files has the correct display item form of Lists/Posts/Post.aspx. Additionally if I reset the alert template for the list back to use the Generic list template the same problem still occurs so this leads me to believe it is not the customisations that are the problem. Code used to assign the alert template to the Posts list: var ats = new SPAlertTemplateCollection((SPWebService) site.WebApplication.Parent); var newTemplate = ats[alertName]; if (newTemplate == null) { // We did not find the specified Template. throw new Exception("Failed to find template SPAlertTemplateType.NewsPost in the template collection."); } list.AlertTemplate = newTemplate; list.Update(); Any assistance will be most welcome, thanks in advance.

Email alerts no longer working- please help.

  
Hello- I recently had a problem applying an SSL certificate to my MOSS 2007 site where I had to rebuild a lot things in order to get the site back up and running.  Now that it is, I can no longer get email alerts to the users.  The odd thing is that when I set up a calendar event, only me (the site administrator) receives an automated message from 'Administrator@xyz.com'???  This tells me that the smtp settings are correct.  I have found severl posts about this but they are all from developers who think that everyone knows how to program and so their answers are not step by step for me to at least try them out?  Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Blank SharePoint email Alerts

  
The message body of email alerts are completely blank.  Alerts have been working fine previously.  I tried the reset alert template command from this post with no joy
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointgeneral/thread/2da0fd95-2156-4b9f-a0b2-8107ee470185

Also, our SQL Server has unlimited connections, so too many connections would not be an issue.

Any ideas I can try before rebooting and restarting services?  I can't do that stuff during the day as that will cause massive interuptions.

SharePoint Designer Workflow to email multiple recipients listed in a custom list

  

Hi all,

I created a workflow in designer attached to a form library. I also have a custom list "Admins" containing names of persons that serves a different purpose but would also like to be used as recipients for the workflow email everytime a new item in the form library is created.

I have been searching the net and tried out few work arounds but so far able to send to only one person in the "Admins" list. The list has a column "Admin Name" which is of type "Person or Group".

Thanks in advance!


Custom workflow action - send an email with blind carbon copy

  
Question: Is there any way that we can send an email with blind carbon copy (BCC) option? I know this feature is unavailable in the custom workflow action (in SPD-2007) but there is a requirement where I need to send an email without revealing other ids of other recipients. 

Removing standard text from custom feedback process email notification

  

My workflow has a Start Feedback Process action, which contains some pre-defined instructions. One of my instructions is to use a particular link to open the workflow history page – I have added this to force the user to open the form via the workflow history page (we're using Forms Services) because the email’s default link opens the form in the InfoPath client, not the browser. It also allows the user to be returned to the page where they will complete their workflow task (we're trying to make navigation as easy for them as possible).

Although I have defined my own set of instructions, the email notification I receive includes some standard text that links to the InfoPath form’s xml file. I don’t want users inadvertently clicking the “To complete this task…” link at the bottom of the email and having the form open in InfoPath. Here is an example of the email I’m referring to:

Links in email alerts

  

Hello,

After configuring an approval workflow, links to approval tasks that are sent to users come with the primary URL of the web application where the site is created.

The problem is that the site has AAM configured and the links sent to users are only available on the server it self.

How can i change this behaviour?

How to setup global email alerts for lists? (rather than individual My Alerts)

  
I would like to configure a calendar to send an email to the people who are attending the event. Is this possible through the SharePoint GUI just like you can configure a task to send an email to the person who was assigned the task? Additionally, are there options to send emails to everyone for generic lists? (rather than making people add it to their My Alerts) Thanks.
