Administrators setting up Alerts for users that they cannot delete RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - Any help would be great!

    I am working on a system where there are multiple users and user groups, and we need to alert the users when the files change or new ones are added. I understand the alerts system, however I was wondering if there is a way for the Administrators to set the alerts up so the users cannot delete them, as it is crucial that the user is alerted every time.

  • Did you try creating a custom permission levels?
    You need to create a new group and unchecked "Create Alerts  -  Create e-mail alerts" option from permission level
    Site Settings > Advanced Permissions > Permission Levels
    Refer to the following post

  • Thanks!

    Just so I'm clear - by doing this, it means they can't access the 'Create Alerts' tab or manage alerts, but we, as administrators, can set up alerts for the user - which they can't delete? For us it is a legal requirement that the user is informed and cannot delete the option to receive alerts.

  • Yes, if the users are added to the group (that don't have 'Create Alerts' permission), and the group is added to a list or document library, users will not be able to Manage alerts in that specific list/document library and administrators will do it for them.
