Interested in seeing Alert Plus in action within a real application? Jump over to Project Management Central to see how Project Managers can utilize the power of alerts in day-to-day project management.

Receive Alerts based on conditions such as:
  • Tasks coming due or overdue.
  • Document status changes from Pending to Approved.
  • Issues status is marked as Active and due date is 1 day away.
  • Publishing of Wiki Pages.
Build effective e-mail alert notifications:
  • Create eye-catching, informative alerts using a rich multi-line control.
  • Include only columns that reinforce the subject of the alert.
  • Choose to display previous and/or new column values.
  • Assemble different alert templates for different list actions, such as when an item is Created vs. Modified.
Stop limiting your users to default SharePoint self-subscription alerting and send alerts to:
  • A distribution list such as a SharePoint Contact list.
  • The user set in the Assigned To column of a Task.
  • To the project manager defined in the associated project details list.
  • Any user (member of SharePoint or not), as long as the user has an e-mail address, an alert can be sent.

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 Bamboo Alert Plus 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 tool pane. Each alert that is configured by Bamboo Alert Plus 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 Central Administration.
