Is it possible to bulk enable the Salesforce Content Email Alerts settings for all users?

Knowledge Article Number 000005333
Description

As an Administrator you may need to set user's "Receive Salesforce CRM Content Email Alerts" or "Receive Salesforce CRM Content Alerts as Daily Digest" settings in bulk.  These preferences determine whether and how users with Salesforce Content subscriptions will receive email notifications if activity occurs for their subscribed content, workspaces, tags, or authors.

Resolution

The "Receive Salesforce CRM Content Email Alerts" and "Receive Salesforce CRM Content Alerts as Daily Digest" settings are available via the API on the User object and can be set with version 23 and above of the Data Loader.

To set the "Receive Salesforce CRM Content Email Alerts" preference update the user field "UserPreferencesContentNoEmail."  When false, a user with Salesforce CRM Content subscriptions will receive email notifications if activity occurs on his or her subscribed content, libraries, tags, or authors. To receive real-time email alerts, set this field to false and set the UserPreferencesContentEmailAsAndWhen field to true. 
 
To set the "Receive Salesforce CRM Content Alerts as Daily Digest" preference update the user field "UserPreferencesContentEmailAsAndWhen."  When false, a user with Salesforce CRM Content subscriptions will receive a once daily email summary if activity occurs on his or her subscribed content, libraries, tags, or authors. To receive email, the UserPreferencesContentNoEmail field must also be false.

If you need additional information, please refer to the User Object API Documentation.
