Good ol' 2003

It may suprise you that I find a couple of things slightly better in the 2003 version of Sharepoint than the 2007 version. One thing is that consistency (and the lack of ;)) of navigation. In SPS2003, you could alert yourself on almost anything (the link was always there!). For example, you could alert yourself on changes of an area. So if a document was added to a document library that was placed on that area you received an alert. Even better was that when a subarea was created, you received an alert that a new area had been discovered!

 

Now it could be me but I haven't found this 'feature' yet in 2007 (MOSS/WSS), thing that comes close is the searchresult alertme functionality. So if anyone knows where I can find this piece of functionality in 2007 please let me know!

In Libraries and Lists, the Alert Me can be found under the Action Menu. Individual items in the list also have an Alert Me on their menu.

Haha I know.. I was refering to the alert functionality of creation of areas (and that would be subsites in 2007)

Unfortunately Microsoft has removed the 'site wide' alert. Users will now have to subscribe to all individual lists on the site.

One step back if you ask me...

Some things were just better with 2003.. sigh..
