Alert when something in a view changes

  Asked By: Bob    Date: Feb 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3562

I have a number of lists on a sharepoints site. One of my lists
allows me to set up alerts when something in a "View" changes. I want
this option on all my lists, but I do not know where to set it.
(Could this only be for Contact lists?) My Calendar and Message board
Lists do not have this option.

I just did some
testing and it seems that the Calendar list template just won't allow
for view-based alerts.

Can anyone else confirm this, or provide an explanation?

I thought that this option  was only available in Issues lists  in v2.
However, it is on nearly all lists in v3.

We are MOSS 2007. I specifically want to get alerts  based on a view  for my
Calendar. Is there a setting?

I have added a "TYPE OF EVENT" column. Our radiothon team only wants to be
notified if a radiothon event is changed or added.
