Alerts in sharepoint library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can we create alerts for other users who have read-only access ? As they have read only access they can't create their own alerts. So I am trying to create it for them, but they are not getting any alerts. Is this possible?

    Yes, if you are a Site Owner (Full Control) then you can create alerts for anyone.

    They should be able to create alerts, unless that permission has been removed.  Are these users Read Only or Annonymous?

    This may be a configuration issue with your email server. Are these users in the same domain? (employees, etc?)

  • 1) user with full permission can set alerts for any user

    2) User with read permission should be able to set alerts as well.

    3) If there is any alert issue, then check the following steps:

    a) Check the alert is really set for that user or not

    b) Clear the cache.ini

    c) Check teh timer job should not be stopped

    d) Check the mail box folder at server level. If there is any mail then it is SharePoint issue, else it is exchange issue

    e) Check if user set any rules and alerts for SharePoint alerts

    f) Cross verify the same user with another list/lib/site
