EventHandler which sends an Email for new/changed items

What do you do if you want to be alerted for changes in a list?

Right. You set an alert. Or you can create a workflow with your SharePoint Designer. But there is a different way. With my "RH.ItemNotifier" Feature, you can configure alerts through the settings of a list.

Configure Users which need to be emailed for new items or changes to existing ones.

So why would you use this solution to create alerts? Well, you don’t :-)
I created this as a proof of concept with some functionality which might come handy sometimes:

  • EventReceiver for lists/document libraries
  • Send an Email through the SharePoint OM
  • Deactivate a feature on all webs in your farm
  • Build a custom aspx page in your layouts folder to handle the user configuration

Feel free to look into the code, and take what you need.

  1. Hi David,
    quote: “You set an alert.”

    You don’t need this. It was just a test. You can recycle my code, but if you want to be notified for changes, configure yourself an alert :-)

    ok fine. I have done the changes but this is working for immediate alert. How can i send daily summary instead of immediate.

    Please reply soon its very very urgent..:-)
