SharePoint Connector hotfix 1



When documents are socialized to Jive, they enter Jive as new documents and kick of email notifications for Jive users that are receiving email notifications for the specific place; this is the default when you join a group.

First, if a user is socializing a site with say 5000 documents, this could result in 5000 emails being sent to all the group members.
Second, if socializing a site with a small number of files but to a group with thousands of members, this could again cause thousands of emails.


Unwanted emails for all newly socialized SharePoint documents even when they are not really new documents, just new to Jive.



As newly streamed documents enter jive, even though they are new to jive, they may be older than some threshold (like created weeks, months ago). If they are older then this configured threshold (see property below), then no email notifications will be sent. This prevents users getting emails for non-recent SharePoint streamed documents.
