SharePoint Pet Peeve #327

Dear Microsoft,

Please enable alerts to fire when an item is submitted to a list that requires approval.

Man, I don't know how many times I keep forgetting to go to a raft of lists that I have to approve content to see if anything new has been added. I know that the EventHandler interface for lists was omitted due to timing, but having to manually check lists where approval is required is rather annoying.

Nintex has a pretty good add-on for Document Libraries but it doesn't work for Lists. There are some Web Parts floating around that will show you what needs you approval which is good too. However I was hoping to minimize some of the extra add-ons that I feel should be part of the base system.

Okay, enough ranting for this morning.
