Hello all

I am trying to recreate a sharepoint 2010 site from little more than a series of screenshots and have got stuck on one particular part of it (I'm new to 2010 and have some dev experience in 2007)

The functionality in question is a drop down field displayed in a list view which allows the end user to subscribe to alerts for that item i.e. the options to select from are the native alert options (Immediate, Daily, Weekly etc)

I'm guessing that this is a custom field with code that uses the object model to programmatically create alerts for the user according to the value selected. Just wondering if I am on the right track or if anyone knows of any other (easier) way to achieve the same thing?

Apols for vagueness - many thanks in advance

I think you are referring to the dynamic dropdown with Alerts link, which is a OOB feature in SharePoint and doesnt require any extra code or configuration from user. You can simply create alerts using the OOB feature and get emails for the changes done to it. Hope this helps.
