I have been testing out this feature and have a few questions.
1- I do not see a way to receive an alert when a new project is created for a certain dept or all depts. Managers would like this. Am I missing something?
2- An alert can be sent to a resource even if the person is not a PWA user. This is good, but the alert email tells the user to visit your Tasks page to see more details or update these assignments. Is these a way to edit the alert text?
John, I don’t typically recommend alerts but some people like them. The problem is that they spit out a lot of emails (any time a task is updated) that end up getting ignored, but doesn’t explain why (very important) and doesn’t necessarily send out emails when it should. It’s a communication function that I like to keep direct and not try to cover it up with a lot of emails. Sorry, that’s me. Like I said, others have used it with success.
I may turn it on to try it out, but I may quickly turn Alerts off. I wish there was a way to edit the emails and edit the default options for ALL users. It is nice MS added the feature, but I wish I had more control in terms of who is alerted, why, frequency, and what is said like I do in QuickBase.
