Monitor folder for check-ins?

Namita Rao (1111) | asked Jan 30 '13, 8:15 a.m.

Is it possible to monitor any folder, for example, "\documents\" for check-ins?
Something on lines of Perforce, which can be configured to send e-mail notifications if any check-ins are made to the monitored folder?
I have searched a lot and could only find this, but could not understand how to configure it:
RTC -> Windows -> Preference -> General -> Notifications.

I'm not quite sure what you want to do. Is this a check-in that you have performed or happens on your repository workspace? Is it some other user that does the check-in and you want to be notified? A check-in can be a pretty common occurrence so there wasn't anything implemented to support this kind of requirement.

For deliveries, there are events for delivery to a stream. Or, you could write an operation participant that sends an email. For something out of the box, I think you'll have to open an enhancement.

 @Tim Mok - Is it some other user that does the check-in and you want to be notified? 

This is what I want. Basically, i want to know all check-ins to my folder.

Yes, I have seen the pending changes view.
I want to get notified through e-mail since it's difficult going through 30+ change sets to know who has checked-in what in my folder.

Did you have a look at the pending changes view?

This view displays all differences between two streams/workspaces. In this picture, the readme.,txt file would be the one, which was checked in and/or delivered.
But (at least out of the box) this does not send e-mails.

Currently, there is no way to process-enable the checkin operation (so you cannot create a follow-up action on checkin to send you email).   This is requested in work item allow process advisors on checkin (103914) .  Please feel free to add a comment on that work item to indicate your interest/support.

Thanks Geoffrey, I will definitely add a comment on the suggested work item to show my support/interest.
