Abnormal behavious of Project Site alerts. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with alerts we configure in Project Sites. Not sure wether it is actually a drawback, or am I doing something wrong. If I create an alert on say Issues list by the name of Issues Alert and configure User A,B and C to recieve emails whenever an item is added to the list. Now later, if I want to stop user C from recieving alerts, I go to Issue Alert (from manage my alerts), and click on the item, I can change the types of alerts but not the users. In order to stop User C from recieving alerts, I have go to Site Actions > Site Settings > User alerts under site administration and delete the alerts for a particular user. Should there not be a way to change alerts directly from manage alerts page itself?

    Regards,

  • What you're seeing is the correct behavior.  It's the Admin site vs. managing
    your own personal alerts.

  • Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for the reply. I understand that it is the correct behaviour but would you agree that as an end user, there should be provision to directly edit an alert that has been configured (in terms of users who recieve/don't recieve emails).
