Alert subscriptions usage scenarios

Like scheduled work item queries, alert subscription's main goal is to keep project stakeholders informed on project changes. However, alert subscription use emails to accomplish this task. This makes them very useful in a number of scenarios. Here are some of them:


  1. Alert subscriptions support easy subscribing for the whole team. Project Manager can setup alert subscriptions for all team members for a particular project.
  2. You can subscribe to multiple projects within the same dialog. This is not an easy task to do outside of TeamCompanion (and inside the TeamExplorer/Visual Studio).
  3. Alert subscriptions support all the events from the Visual Studio plus additional events.
