How to Setup a Weekly "Events" Email Alert?

  Asked By: Judson    Date: Nov 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2592

Is there a way to setup an "alert e-mail" that will take all calendar events for the week and send them out to a distribution list? The standard alert only seems to grab updates, not all events for the week.

Any ideas?

There are two options as I see it.

1) Create a custom timer job using the SPJobDefinition and install it using a feature. Then let the feature activate the job on a schedule (for example using the SPWeeklySchedule). Then code your Job to get all the weekly  events  and create a custom mail

2) Create a manual Alert and set the Filter property (using CAML) to get all the weekly events. Then set it to send  emails once a week  (AlertFrequency property).
