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.
