Creating alerts for others on MOSS/WSS 3

  Asked By: Antwan    Date: Jul 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 1581

I haven't migrated yet from 2003, but is there a way to set alerts for
groups or is that still a custom webpart when we upgrade?

MOSS 2007 allows you to create alerts  for both SharePoint groups and for
other users.

On the "New Alerts" page, When I enter the name of a SharePoint group in the
"Send Alerts To" box, the "Check Names" button reports that "no exact match
was found". When I submit, the submission is refused with a message "You
must type a username, a real address, or group name to add a user or group."

It looks like the People Picker is set up to do groups, but the "New Alerts"
page is not.

It's looking for an email address. AD Security groups and AD
Distribution groups have an email address. SharePoint Groups don't.

...you could always e-mail enable the SP group using DMS. That would
create/sync a DL in AD for alerts.

Sorry, what's DMS? Googling "Microsoft DMS" gives a "Dealer Management
System" (automotive) and a "Defense Messaging System" (military)...

Directory Management Service - in Central Admin, Incoming E-mail.
