SharePoint alert issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello SP experts,

    I am able to set up an alert for "new items are added" in a document library and receive the initial email stating that the alert has been set up, but when a new document is added to the folder I never receive another email after that. I am experiencing this on SharePoint 2010 environment. thanks for any help

    Check whether the "Immediate Alerts" job is enabled for your web application. check these properties:
    1. job-immediate-alerts
    2. job-daily-alerts 
    3. job-weekly-alerts
    stsadm.exe -o getproperty -url "http://Your-SharePoint-web-App-URL" -pn job-immediate-alerts

    The expected output is:

    <Property Exist="Yes" Value="every 5 minutes between 0 and 59"/>.  

    If you don’t get this, run the following command to change its value.

    stsadm.exe -o setproperty -pn job-immediate-alerts -pv “every 2 minutes between 0 and 59" -url http://Your-SharePoint-web-App-URL
