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.
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:
- How to customize the timer interval for alerts (immediate alerts are sent out after a delay determined by the timer interval).
- How to customize the alert templates (Each list type pretty much has one).
- How to customize the alert email.
- How to create your own alert template (instead of customizing one).
Hope this helps someone working with Alerts,
