You've been subscribed to an alert email (disable?) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to NOT have SharePoint automatically send out the email that says you've been subscribed to an alert?

  • Hi run4it,

    yes we can stop SharePoint automatic emails to user. To stop sending email

    • go to Site Action > Site Settings > User Alerts under site administration
    • select user name (drop down) > Click Update
    • then click on "Delete Selected Alerts" for the user
    • this will stop sending automatic alert emails to user and then to update user for any item modification on site you can create a WorkFlow.

    hth

  • I don't mean ALL alerts - only the initial one that is sent when a person is signed up for an alert.

  • The procedural question that should be asked, is why would you want this to be done?  Only administrators can set up alerts for others users, so if this notification if removed, how will the end user receive confirmation that their alert request has been set up successfully?

    You might want to suggest they set up a rule to divert these off to a seperate folder upon receipt if they're an offensive item for the end user.
