E-mail others based on Filed Against query

I am looking for a way to notify other operations teams about the status of applications and services.   We have created an "Filed Against" parameter called Onboarding.   I would like to either subscribe these users to the work item, e-mail them a link or make the work item available via RSS so they are not surprised when it is deployed, released, etc...

Is this possible via UI, or will I have to use the API.  If API any direction or documentation on getting started?  

Any help/guidance is greatly appreciated!

there is nothing builtin to provide this support. you could write an extension (participant) to do this processing.

you could also create a query that lists these workitems and then use that query in an RSS feed that would show in the users Team Artifacts - Feeds section in Eclipse.

 Thanks Sam!

Sounds like an OK option, can these feeds still be accessed if they are not eclipse (or even RTC users) users?

I personally have not seen an external feed reader against RTC feeds.  doesn't mean there aren't any..

the user authentication was the main problem last time I tried this (over a year now)
