Disable alerts on specific librarys RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’ve a News site (publishing site) in my portal structure (team sites)  – and I would like to make a link to the “Alert me” from the portals FrontPage to the news pages library’s alert function....    

    But when I click on the “Administer My alerts” on the news frontpage and the "add alert"

    I get directed to http://<contoso>/news/_layouts/SubChoos.aspx  (all good...) but there are
     five lists and a next/cancel button…

    The 5 list are:

    • Pictures
    • Documents
    • Pages
    • Workflows
    • Short news (a custom list I've created)

    I would like only to present the “pages” and the “Short news” library as an option to subscribe to…

    So how do I remove the other ones from this page?

  • Hi,

    Actually, you don't need to remove them, you can select one list , like short news to create a alert, and then right click your alert name, click properties, copy url, edit alert link in your frontpage with this url. If you want more alerts, you can create a new page with all alerts links, you just need to change alert link in your frontpage to be the page's url.

  • Hi,

    If I go to _layouts/MySubs.aspx I have the option to add and remove alerts. Do you have that option too?

  • Hi 

    Yes...but it's not this..

    If you press the "add alert"  the next page will show a message  "Choose a list or library..."  and at the right side on the page I have 5 options (radio buttons) ...it's thees 5 I would like to reduce to only 2 ...

     

    It makes no sense IMHO that users can subscribe to a workflow list...

  • Hi Jasper

     

    It's not a 3'party I need... just want to remove some of the libraries...and when I can create a new that shows up there - I must also have the ability to remove one (or more)

  • I don't think that's possible.

  • Hi,

    alerts will be set on web base not on list base. There is no property that can be set that a library is not avaliable for alert selection.

    You can disable alert using custom solution deployment but if a user creates a new alert the list will be avaliable for selection too.

    Kind regards
    Stefan
