Project Site - Sharpoint | Alerts automatically removed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have the following problem:

    In a project site in sharepoint 2010, users who are not site administrators when they create alerts on the site, the alert is removed autimaticamente the next day without permission. The same does not happen with users of directors.

    Additionally checked the settings in the Central Administration Web Application option in General Settings and Alerts which have attached information.

    How can I resolve this situation?

    Thank you for your attention

  • Hello Ricardo,

    Where are you seeing that alerts are turned off.  The SharePoint Central setting that you are referring to is way to prevent a runaway number of alerts from happening in the system.

    I would check some of your SharePoint timer jobs and perhaps the workspace sync to see if that is affecting your alerts.

  • Hi there,

    If you synchronise Project Server permissions automatically this can will happen as users are removed from the Project site then re added based on their Project Server permissions. See a post from Brian:

  • HI Ricardo,

    Mathew's reply is spot on to your issue, you need to disable the auto synchroizniation option available at PWA -> server settings -> Project Site Provisioning settings.

    its unfortunate though, as sometimes it seems like project server being part of SharePoint is more of a curse then any advantageous :)

    good luck.
