Article 17 from 30 : Using Remote Receivers to handle spappweb list/listItems events

This post is article 17 from the 30 Articles App series for SharePoint

In article 16, we have seen how we can use remote event receivers to handle App related events.

In this article, I will discuss about how you can handle list-events remotely.

I am talking about a scenario when you have some data in sharepoint artifacts; And you want to handle any change remotely.

Let’s take an example. We have a Issue-List in our cloud-hosted app and we want an engineer(s) will receive an email whenever a new entry is created.

We need to handle the ItemAdded event for our Issue-List.

Ok. Let’s get started :

In my App I have already created the Issue-List.

Now select sharepoint-app project and -> add new item -> remote event receiver



This will generate new service in your web-project and also make necessary changes to app-manifest.


There you go. Now you can handle list item-added event.

Hope that helps.
