  • Please can I use SP designer to create a workflow that will trigger an alarm whenever any user creates a site?

  • Hi ClifScott.

    I don't think you can do that: SharePoint Designer workflows are not triggered when such an event occurs.
    You should write custom code that implements the SPWebEventReceiver.WebProvisioned method, which handles a synchronous after event that fires after a subsite (SPWeb object) is fully provisioned and the provisioning process has stopped, but does not fire when the root web site of a new site collection is created.

    Bye.

  • Hi ClifScott,

    Agree with Luigi, SharePoint Designer workflow works based on the list/library level, we aren’t able to send email when a site created.
