Is it possible to generate a Sharepoint 'alert' when a document has been Opened?
Posted on 2010-09-24
I'm looking to implement a simple but secure method of storing some IT Admin passwords within Sharepoint. The passwords would be stored in MS Word doc's located within a Sharepoint Doc Library. The Doc Library would be accessible by several second-line IT support personel so that they can get access to certain applications whenever the front-line support staff are not available. For audit purposes, I need to be notified automatically whenever anyone accesses / opens the Word docs (as opposed to edits the Word docs) as I will then need to change the passwords. There are commerical apps for this type of thing such as Thycotic Secret Server but this looks to be a bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut to me - unless its not possible to do what I'm requesting...
