How to Customize SharePoint Alerts


So I have been looking for a workaround for something related to alerts and stumbled across this wonderful article on how to create customized alert notifications, and/or customized alert emails for SharePoint.

http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepointdeveloperdocs/archive/2007/12/07/customizing-alert-notifications-and-alert-templates-in-windows-sharepoint-services-3-0.aspx

If you have ever wanted to customize the alerts SharePoint sends out then this bad boy is probably the place to look (since I haven’t seen anything better).

To give a high level summary of what the article explains:

  1. How to customize the timer interval for alerts (immediate alerts are sent out after a delay determined by the timer interval).
  2. How to customize the alert templates (Each list type pretty much has one).
  3. How to customize the alert email.
  4. How to create your own alert template (instead of customizing one).

Hope this helps someone working with Alerts,
Richard Harbridge
