Disabling Manage Alerts Option from Ribbon RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    Is there a way I can disable Manage Alerts icon from the ribbon? I have disabled the alerts from the site and Central Admin but users are still able to use the Manage Alerts option that allows them to further navigate into user groups etc. Despite the fact that they have minimum (read only) permission.

    Looking forward for your feedback on this.

  • On the outgoing emails section within Central Administration, remove all SMTP server details.  This'll remove the alert me functionality entirely but it'll be done for ALL sites / applications.

    Or you can consider hiding all the ribbon.

  • Steve,

    Removing all SMTP related details means that I wont be able to use the email fucntionality as well (an important part of our intranet portal). Similarly, removing the ribbon also deprives user from using one of the great features in SP2010.

    Is there no other way we can get rid of this??

  • Let's turn it around, see if I'm missing something.  What are you trying to prevent?  Information getting out, email traffic, info being forwarded to inappropriate people?
