My Site Profile

  Asked By: Madeline    Date: Mar 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1227

I'm using FBA w/ SQL auth. How do I link the My Site profile to the rest of
the MOSS system? It seems that the My Settings profile is the only one
linked to any particular functionality such as Alerts or Workflow mail outs.
Am I crazy here or is this the way it really is and my users must update
contact data in 2 places?

1 Log on as a member of the Share point group designer or as the site

2 Open the site  and click on the document library to view its content

3 To add an alert

* For a separate file: Use the quick menu for any file; select
Alert ME.

* For a document Library: Click Actions > alert me

4 The default e-mail address will be your own. If you want to create an
alert for other users  or groups, simply enter their names in the users
field. You can also click on the little user directory icon and search
for users and groups.

5 In the change type section, select what type of change you want to
trigger an alert. The default is all changes.

6 In the send alerts  for These changes section, select the type of
filter to be used for the alert; the default is Anything changes. Her
you can also set the rule that the alert must only trigger when a
document is displayed in a specific view.

7 Define how often you want SharePoint to check for modifications. The
recommended frequency is send a daily summary. This will group all
alerts into one email message per day. If you select the option to send
an email immediately, the email will show up within five minutes after
the change. You can also select tan option to get one alert message
once every week.

8 Click ok to save and close the web form

A summary of the alerts are listed in two places. Note that they do not
show the same information.

1. All alerts for specific team site: Click site Actions, Site
Settings, User Alerts.

2. All alerts for a user, in both the portal site and any team
site: In Outlook 2003 and 2007 the user will see these views by opening
the menu Tools, Rules and alerts, Manage Alerts tab.

I took this answer from page 383 and 384 of Beginning SharePoint 2007
Administration. It is a wrox book. No I don't work for them, but the
book has been my little buddy since I started using the program with no
experience or knowledge of SharePoint.
