In SharePoint, users can receive alerts by email when items in a document library (a 'folder' containing several documents or files) are changed, added, or removed.
Problem: My SharePoint Administrator-level users wish to add a list of colleagues to several document libraries. To complete this task in SharePoint, they would need to add each user to each list. This is time-consuming and prone to error.
Solution: After researching the Internet on solutions, I discovered Bamboo Alert Administrator. This tool plugs in to your SharePoint installation and allows users to manage user alerts on the document libraries in the SharePoint sites that they have Administrator access to. Alerts can be added in a batch process between document libraries.
