This is a workflow feature that enhances the default “Alert Me” feature of the MS SharePoint.
SharePoint Alert Reminder Boost 2.0 provides a boost to the default SharePoint Alert Me feature for sending alerts. The default feature alerts users on item creation, modification and deletion. The additional alerts can be generated based on customizable dates and intervals, ensuring that important deadlines are never missed. These sophisticated conditions using functions, operators and list columns can be created easily. These then let you send out reminders at special circumstances. For example, a customer can be informed about the resolution of an issue. This will call for simply setting up the SharePoint Alert Boost workflow on the customer issue list and configuring the "Customer E-Mail" column as the source for pulling the e-mail addresses of the recipients. All the intimations sent through this system highlight any new content so that the recipient will find it easy to locate important points.
The additional features include time-triggered notifications based on specified times and intervals, sending notifications based on column values and conditions, specifying CC, BCC, Send and Reply-To e-mail addresses, highlighting changes and deletions of field values, and customizable e-mail content. Transmission of these alerts could be to columns containing users/groups in the current as well as external lists. Existing SharePoint users/groups can be recipients as that is the default of Alert Me feature anyway. The SharePoint Alert Reminder Boost 2.0 is compatible with WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007. It is compatible with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 also. The tool will work with all the currently popular browsers. The interface makes it easy for an administrator type but this is not for newbies. They will need to understand the implications of setting the various parameters to use this effectively.
