Alerts in SharePoint is a powerful tool for users but about a nightmare for administrator. It’s not comfortable for administrator to see user subscribes and manage them.

For example, it’s really impossible for administrator to change a subscriber using web interface. May be there are third party tools but if you don’t have them right now and the changes you should do immediately?

I was faced  with such a situation and I decided to use powershell to change a subscriber on SharePoint site changes. My result is below. Of course, you can modify it on your own risk 🙂


Another problem with subscribers was when I updated a test environment and I didn’t want users to receive messages about their subscribes. I wanted just to remove them.  My script is similar with the above one, but has some differences.
