consolidated alerts? Contents of a view

Is it possible to send an email which contains all the contents of a view?

I want to send an email every Monday morning that sends all the items in a particular view. Sort of a consolidated alert.

Is that possible?

Not out of the box.  But anything can be done with code :)

Here's a great idea.  Instead of emailing them all the items in a view....why not just email them a link to the list so they can see themselves.  Unless they don't have access to the site.

You could set a weekly alert on a view, but only if the data changed in the past week would the group get the alert email, and then it would only be a link to the site and not all of the items.  You'll have to program or buy a solution, it's not OOTB.

Not to my knowledge, spd can't loop very well, and you'd need a script that was scheduled, not triggered by a workflow. Depending on your programming skills, you could use server-side vb (ugh) or ironpython (pretty cool) or client-side vbscript with caml. If it were me, I'd learn/use ironpython, its easy and powerful. Lots of examples too!
