Notifications - how to get less of them?

Question asked by calmaguer on Apr 5, 2017

Trying to get off of Sharepoint notification emails to have a little more granular control.

 

I have a small workflow sending me notifications when a new item is added to my list.  Works great!

 

I also have a separate small workflow sending me notifications when an item gets modified.  Not so great.

 

As soon as an item gets added, it's modified by the main workflow, and I get two notifications : "Item X has been added" and then immediately I get "Item X has been modified".

 

Whenever someone makes a change, I get a notification "Item X has been modified".

 

That change triggers my main workflow to update the item and I get another notification "Item X has been modified".

 

So I'm getting two notifications for every added item and two for every change.  

 

How are you all handling this?  Any ideas to get less notifications?  I'm familiar with getting the notification summary, and that doesn't really work for me.
