Managing Alertts on Sharepoint

By lgoulding ·
as the Administrator of our Sharepoint site, I am wanting to set up alerts for all users so they are notified when lists are updated.

I am doing this is administrator to be sure Users are kept aware of changes. I am trying to do away with the emails to let Users know information as been updated.

I have found i can add these alerts, however, i am finding that i have to enter a user, not a group. When i do a group, Sharepoint says it can not find email addresses. Maintaining this would be a nightmare.

Any help would be great.

If you are not intend to improve it through code, I highly recommend you to consider SharePoint third party tool. There are many of such tools focus different facets of SharePoint Alert features.
<a href="">SharePoint Alert Reminder</a> is a tool which looks solve the flaw that you are talking about.
Hope this helps

Alerts cannot be set for group

by sam1978in In reply to Managing Alertts on Share ...

Alerts cannot be set for Distrubition group. Because Sharepoint doesnt recognises DL.

You can setup Security group in AD and assign an email to it. And, then try to set alert on security group.
