Good strategy for alert suppression during mass update ?



Just was pondering the best method to suppress all alerts during a mass update operation, (when desired to suppress, that is).


Perhaps via a hidden field that you update during such a mass update, and every alert workflow would key off of?  (Would need to be cleared though too then, post update).


Anyone have a successful strategy / best practice recommendation?







I presume you mean email updates? You can turn those on/off via the "EmailHeader" settings. There's some documentation in the API, and I believe the Apex Data Loader supports this option natively.
