Email Alerts working randomly. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scenario

    I need alerts for new items created in a list. I go to the alert me section of the list and subscribe to an alert.

    Settings selected by me.

    Change type = New Items are added

    Send me alert for these changes =  Anything Changes.

    I was looking for alerts for only new items created. Instead i am getting alerts for new items and also when items are modified. 

    Q1. Is this normal SharePoint behavior?

    Q2. Do options selected in "Send Alerts for these changes" overrides the options selected in "Change Type"

    Please see the screenshot below to understand what i am talking about.

  • Go look at ALL of your alerts for this list. I'd bet that you have two of them.  This one, and the one doing what you don't want.  Delete the latter.

    Alert Me -> Manage My Alerts ...

  • Checked it already. Just one alert there. 

    Can this be a configuration issue?
