#StackBounty: #list #development #administration #alert #configuration Invitation email when creating an alert on an item will sometime…

Bounty: 50

I was facing an issue reported by our customer. here are the current settings:-

  1. we have team site inside sharepoint on-premises enterprise 2013.
  2. when users creates alters on list items, and they specify other users inside the alert “Send Alerts to” section as follow:-

enter image description here

  1. the users defined inside the “Send Alerts to” will receive and invitation email.
  2. But the PROBLEM is that sometimes this invitation email subject will contain the List Name + Item Title. while on other lists the invitation email will only contain the item title.
    so the subject of the alert invitation email can be:-
An alert for 'ListTitle: ItemTitle' has been created

OR

An alert for 'ItemTitle' has been created

where in the first email subject it will contain the list title followed by the item title. while in the second email subject it will contain the item title only.

now i keep searching for this issue for around 2 days but could not indicate the reason. until today i have capture the first hint. now all our sub-sites facing this problem are created using a site template. where this site template contain 5 lists. now if users set an alert on an item inside the 5 lists which were added as part of the site template then the alert invitation email will contain both the ListTitle+ItemTitle. while if we create a new list specifically under a subsite (in other word the list is not part of the site template), then when users set an alert for an item inside this new list, then the invitation email subject will only include the item title…so can anyone adivce what is causing this confusion ??

#StackBounty: #list #workflow #calculated-column Updating a field in a list with a number from a different list

Bounty: 50

I’m working on SharePoint 2010. I have two lists, Devices and Knownissues. In Devices I have the ID column with an item generated number which I want to update in a column in Knownissues called DevicesID.

I already have a Lookup field in Knownissues. I tried updating the field using Nintex Workflow but have been banging my head against a brick wall (the best result I can get is returning ‘1’ and not the actual number in the ID column). Surely there’s a straight forward way of doing this? I was thinking a calculated field, but I am happy to hear suggestions.

#StackBounty: #2013 #list #sharepoint-addin #custom-list ContentType List Forms Links from Site Collection to Add-In

Bounty: 50

I am currently developing a SharePoint Add-In which has used Add-In internal Lists in which it saved its data. But I am now trying to move the lists out of the Add-In to have more possibilities in administration of these lists such as Event Listeners or Timer Jobs.

I have Custom ContentTypes on one of these Lists and I am also using List Form here to redirect a User to a specific Page within the Add-In with the ListItem-Data.

I am not sure if it is possible to fully move all of the lists out of the Add-In with the Forms and the ContentTypes. The thing is that I am currently redirecting the user to a relative Path of the Add-In if he clicks on a ListItem. But as soon as I move to outside-located Lists I cannot provide a static URL into the Add-In (Which I need for my functionality). (SharePoint always change the URL of the Add-Ins)

Is my problem clear and is here anyone who can help me?

EDIT: I only have the following link besides the “pure” app-url:
http://server:port/sites/mysite/_layouts/15/appredirect.aspx?instance_id=6691d7f1%2D466e%2D4804%2Da9f4%2Dec896a6a19cd

But with this URL I cannot provide any parameters to my sharepoint-hosted app/add-in.
