Sharepoint Email Alert Problem

I have a number of sharepoint alerts set up that notify me of additions and changes to items recorded in our lists. For three of the alert emails, I will get something like this:
Alert result
http://companyweb - XXXX
Change/Work Requests Summary  
Update Bins on GateKeeper was modified by Joe Bloggs at 01/08/2007 08:37.  
Go to My Alerts to edit, delete, or view your alerts.  
This is the sort of layout that I want. The problem with one of the lists, is that rather than give the item name in the alert email I get the following:
Alert result
http://companyweb - XXXX
Fault Issue Log Summary  
Item ID146 was added by Joe Bloggs at 31/07/2007 10:06.  
Go to My Alerts to edit, delete, or view your alerts.  
The 'Item ID146' is the issue is it possible to change this to the list item name? At least then it is more meaningful that an ID number. Thanks in advance.

Using SharePoint Designer, you will be able to configure much more comprehensive alerts, and also tailor the emails to precisely what you need. Adding lookups from the item and so forth.

Here are some resources on that:


Why not download the trial and have a play, it's excellent. Good luck.
