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 and work sharing tools.
SharePoint alerts and notifications are essential features that allow users to 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 web part 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 of SharePoint Alerts and Reminder Web Part is the ability to create your own SharePoint alerts, using Rich Text format.
You can also define the frequency of SharePoint alerts by simply choosing one of these 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). Also, all SharePoint alerts can be assembled into a single email, instead of being sent in several email messages.
Finally, SharePoint Alerts and Reminders web part allows to send 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 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 over 90%.
The option of Custom Templates makes it possible to create a body of the SharePoint Alert message within seconds. Also, SharePoint Alerts and Reminders Message Templates enable 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.
