Messages can be sent to users when the status of tasks in the Workplan change. Messages are sent to the mail server when events are
triggered. VPC checks every 2 hours. You can force an immediate notification check by clicking on the Force Notifications icon. The process to add a notification is as follows:
- Select the Insert Row button and a new panel will open
- Enter the task #
- Select the
trigger from pull down menu (See below)
- Select the recipient Default maximum size is 512 characters including commas
- Enter the message. Default maximum size is 1,200 characters
- Click on either Save to
save the notification to the server and close the panel, or Save and Add to save the notification to the server and clear
the panel for another notification to be entered.
For the purposes of notification triggers, days are calculated in calendar days.
Notification messages that have already been sent cannot be edited. If the suspend notifications box is checked, notifications will not be sent out. When the box is subsequently unchecked, notifications will be sent out if the applicable triggers have been tripped, even though they may be late.
