Issues with Alerting off a specific view RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Form Library with multiple filtered views.  Anytime there is a change to the documents in those views an Alert will be sent out.  We have the approval process turned on.  My issue is that when I make a change to a document in the view so it does not meet the requirements to appear in the view and is only seen in the All Items view, I delete the document from the All Items view, my customers are still receiving the Alert that a document has been deleted.  Why?  The document is not in the view that the Alert is set up for.

    When you choose All Changes, does it ignore that you chose to Alert off a specific view and instead Alerts if the All Items view?

  • Hi,


    I understand  that you set an alert to notify the users when any changes are added to items in a specific view. When you delete the item that shows in  ‘all item view’, it also send an alert to the user . Please check that you haven’t set another alert on the ‘All item view’ before .You can check the alert on this site by doing: Actions>Alert me>view my existing  alerts on this site .


    By the way ,you should also check whether it  is set to send alerts when ‘someone changes an item that appears  in the following view’ to the correct view .


    When you  choose ‘all changes’ ,it will not ignore that you choose to Alter off a specific view .
