Why Do You Need Sharepoint Alerts & Reminders Web Part?
Microsoft SharePoint technologies are designed for effective organization of corporate information. They provide quick access to working information and contain powerful document management as well as work sharing tools.
SharePoint alerts and notifications are essential features that allow users to effectively work on their tasks and always be on schedule. Though alerts in SharePoint are flexible, they often require additional adjustment and detailed customization. SharePoint Alerts and Reminders provides users with this additional adjustment tool. Now you can create your own SharePoint alert in an instant, and allow it to be sent to a specific user or a group of sharepoint users. An important feature with the SharePoint Alerts and Reminder Web Part is the ability to create your own SharePoint alerts in Rich Text format.
You can also define the frequency of SharePoint alerts by simple choosing one of the following options: send alert immediately, hourly, daily or weekly. SharePoint alerts can also be sent within a specified timetable (i.e., send email or sms alert only within business hours — from 8 AM to 5 PM). All of this can then be combined into a single ticket. When you enable this feature, all of your SharePoint alerts will be assembled into a single email instead of being sent in several email messages.
Finally, SharePoint Alerts and Reminders web part allows sending SharePoint alerts and notifications not only as e-mail alerts, but also as SMS alerts or via instant messengers like Jabber or Miranda.
Another feature of the SharePoint Alerts and Reminders web part is the Custom Filtering System. This allows users to create complex terms and conditions for sending SharePoint alerts. An example would be for you to receive SharePoint notifications when your task is complete or the percentage of completion is more than 90%.
The option of Custom Templates makes it possible to create the Body of the SharePoint Alert message within seconds. The Virto SharePoint Alert and Reminder Message Templates enables users to use different tags in the HTML-based template body. The tags are replaced with the Alert List column fields and other elements while the message is being drafted.
