Task Lists and Email Alerts

  Asked By: Eleanor    Date: Apr 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2745

I have a site with a Task list on it that when a new task is created an
email is sent to the assigned-to person. This is working as expected,
which is great. What is not working as I would expect is when multiple
changes are made within the same job run cycle. For example, 5 updates
are made within the 5 minutes between the processing of records from
the eventcache table. In this instance only the first of the changes
results in an email being sent? Is there a way to ensure that all
changes result in emails being sent?

The alert system runs every 5 minutes so even though you have your alert
set for immediate notification, you will only get the first alert. If you want
an alert for evry change when it occurs, try using an EventHandler.
