SharePoint Alert Reminder Boost 2.0 gives you the ability to optimize your default SharePoint Lookup experience with additional features and functions for sending alerts and reminders. With the SharePoint Alert Reminder Boost 2.0 add-on you get the ability to send changes notifications via SharePoint item event or customized time triggered email and SMS. Release 2.4.821.0, available from August 2012, has added some new features and has a 30 day trial period.
SharePoint Alert Me was limited to 4 functions that gave you the ability to send notifications on item creation, modification and deletion; Send notifications via SMS; Send daily and weekly notification summaries; and Specify To, CC, BCC recipients based on user/group columns. With the availability of SharePoint Alert Reminder Boost 1.0 you lost two functions, Send notifications via SMS and Send daily and weekly notification summaries, but were given additional features including the ability to Send notifications based on specified times and intervals; Define complex notification conditions; Specify To, CC, BCC recipients based on user/group columns; Highlight changes made to items in notifications; Comprehensive e-mail content customization; and Import/export Alert Reminder Boost settings as XML file. These are all excellent features that enhanced the ability of SharePoint and if you have used version 1.0 then you will already know how great these features are at sending notifications. But you are now asking what additional features do I get in the new release?
Here are some of the new features available for you in version 2.0: the return of the ability to Send notifications via SMS; the return of the ability to send daily and weekly notification summaries; customizable alternative access mappings for item URL; the ability to send notifications to users in external list columns; exclude users from receiving notifications; and inform users prior to sending notifications.
