Hello All,

 

I am looking for a solution to automate or send an alert any time a new folder is created in the Documents library. On the top folder level only. I see the alerts send when any item or folder is created or added within the top folder level. Is there a way to customize the alert emails sent from SharePoint to state where an item was added in the document library? Or a way to only allow alerts on the top-level folder and not subfolders or items within it?

I'm open to any suggestions. 

We have multiple sites as this will need to be done to more than one document library.
