Within all SharePoint Lists and Libraries, users have the ability to subscribe to Alerts based on simple trigger options
including when items are Created, Modified or Deleted. Based on this subscription to a list or library, an e-mail notification is sent when the
trigger occurs on any item in the selected SharePoint List or Library.
Bamboo Alert Plus takes e-mail alerts to a new level by providing a supplemental alert mechanism providing users ultimate flexibility in how alerts
are generated, the look and feel and who they are sent. Below is a comparison chart between Bamboo Alert Plus and SharePoint Alerts:
After adding the Bamboo Alert Plus Web Part to a page, the SharePoint Administrator or Designer can define which users has the rights to create, modify or delete Bamboo Alerts based
on the selected SharePoint Groups in the Bamboo Alert Plus Web Part tool pane. Each alert that is configured by the Bamboo Alert Plus Web Part is saved to a list within the SharePoint
site called Alert+ Configuration List.
During the installation of Alert Plus, five custom SharePoint Timer Jobs are created on each Web application Alert Plus is deployed to. Each custom SharePoint Timer Job corresponds to each of the
alert frequency options and runs at its respective time: As Soon As Possible, Every Hour, Every Day, Every Week, and Custom Schedule. When the custom SharePoint Timer Job runs, it checks for pending
items to alert on based on Alert Jobs defined in the Alert+ Configuration List sends the e-mail notification through the configured Outgoing E-mail Server configured in SharePoint
