I set up a perfect Alert configuration for a Tasks List on Project A. I am now setting up Project B; how do I apply the setting from the Task A List without duplicating all the work?
The Alert Plus Web Part copy function allows users to duplicate existing alerts. This function is available from the Alert Plus Web Part List view. Select Copy Item from the item drop-down menu. This creates a duplicate of the selected Alert with the text "Copied" prefixed to the Alert Title. The new Alert is set to a status of Disabled. All other Alert configuration settings are copied from the original Alert.
The copy function is available only for duplicating Alerts within the same Alert Plus Web Part; Alert Plus does not provide built-in support for moving or copying Alert items across Alert Plus Configuration Lists. Since all Alert information is contained in items in the Alert Plus Configuration List, you can use SharePoint data migration tools or custom coding to move Alert items between Lists that exist in different sites.
