Does Project Sites need to be changed for Changing Alert Email Templates RRS feed


All replies

  • Hi Onur--

    for one of my customer, we have done some changes in alert templates. It doesn't need any change in project site. 

    Please see the below MSDN:

    Alert templates are stored in the Alerttemplates.xml file, which is located in the %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML folder. Alerttemplates.xml defines the format, contents, filters, event types and properties used to create alert messages from each list type. A developer can customize alerts by modifying a copy of the Alerttemplates.xml file and then loading the customized alert templates by using the command stsadm -o updatealerttemplates.

    Hope that helps.

  • Hello Mr Amit, thank your reply. We have used OOB project risk & issues lists. (Their content types are called project site issue and risk) Since we know that these list are only availble in Project , and not available in Sharepoint.

    We wanted to ask if we make these changes in the Alerttemplates. XML does it also cover the Project site issues and risks alerts  ?
