the previous article we showed the
Alert for changes feature,
present in all SharePoint lists and libraries.
In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer
of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows two additional
alerts that are only available in SharePoint lists that
build on either the Tasks or the Issue Tracking template:
Alert for change in a specified view.
E-mail notification to the person who has been assigned
The view option comes as a dropdown in the Alert settings,
where the preferred view can be selected.
The notification to the assignee is very easy to set, you
just click a radio button, but it is not possible to customize
the notification at all. And it is only sent out when a
tasks has been assigned to a user, and only to that user.
Set an e-mail notification for task assignment
Open the list where you want to set the assigned
Click o the List Settings button under the LIST
tab in the ribbon.
Click on Advanced settings in the General Settings
Click Yes to 'Send e-mail when ownership is assigned'.
To have customized notifications you need to create flow
or a workflow. These give nearly endless possibilities for
under what conditions the e-mail should be sent, what the
e-mails should contain and who should receive them. Refer
