Create alerts for other users

I'm wondering if there's a way for an administrator to set up alerts
for other users. I'm pretty sure SharePoint can't do this out of the
box - but does anyone know how I could make this happen

We've been looking for one too, the closest thing we found is this product:


The only issue for us is it doesn't work with SPS, only WSS. If you are only using WSS, then this would work for you. They have stated that they are going to work on an enhancement to support SPS, but they don't have a time frame on when it will be ready anymore.

I use this on my WSS site and works well.


Answer #3    Answered By: Laura Walker     Answered On: May 04

Just to clarify - it will work on WSS sites under a portal site, correct? (Just not on the portal site itself.)

Answer #4    Answered By: Percy Beach     Answered On: May 04

I don't know if it will work on the WSS sites under a portal site. I'd ask the company if that's supported.

I'm going to try the other one as well, we might be able to take it and use it for what we need to do.
