Disable alerts

In some scenarios we don’t want our users to able to use alerts on lists or libraries on a en entire site.

Reason for this could be to simplify for the users, less clutter, or simply cause you don’t want it to be possible to put alert on sites that might carry sensitive information that shouldn’t be sent over the wire.

More and more people host their email off-premises these days and not everyone is up to speed on TLS just yet so this kind of scenarios is getting more common.

To disable Alert for an entire site:

  1. Central Administration > Application Management> Manage Web Applications >
  2. Current Site > General Settings> Alerts > Alerts on this server are = Off
  3. Verify on the site.

Changes appear immediately without any reset.
