Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

I kind of abandoned the administrator side of SharePoint lately on this blog.  I wanted to write about an issue at Terracon that I have run into as of lately.  I wrote a Site Data Reporting User Control as many of you have noticed.  You have probably seen the CodePlex Project recently...Well I started to get a little curious and check if users were creating multiple alerts on a library, list, or item.  I was a little astonished to see multiples of threes and fours set to a document library or list or a single item from the same person.  My question to the MS Product and Technologies Team is why can a user set multiple alerts of the same frequency (i.e. immediate, daily, or weekly)?  Are you guys going to change this in the next version of SharePoint or are you considering changing it?  I'm not sure if the team actually cares what I say, but I figured that I would post this question into the great ether.  It is just something that bothers me to see.  I might end up creating some type of solution that checks for multiple alerts on the same item from the same user of the same frequency and deletes duplicates.  There may be something out there on CodePlex already.  If anyone knows let me know.  If not, keep your eyes peeled for something in the next two months...
