Notify group leader when task of workflow is arrived to user of group

Notify group leader when task of workflow is arrived to user of group

Hi everybody,

I designed a workflow to send an email to user in group who receive the task. I want also to notify automatically the group leader for information that the task is arrived to user.

Note I have many groups, so many group leaders.

Thanks!!!

RE: Notify group leader when task of workflow is arrived to user of group

Probably the best way to do this is to create a small Event Script using OScript to process the request as part of the workflow. If you'd rather not use OScript, then you could add a call from a WebForm via the REST API or a server side call to get the content via a WebService.

RE: Notify group leader when task of workflow is arrived to user of group

I will echo Greg and say either do it totally within workflows with oscript and many people do not know or are forced not to implement elegant solutions.In that case you can always use just database queries to find who is the group leader and send them emails (most db tools support some kind of smtp or even C# or Java).Another OT subtype is called WebReports which is widely used to perform "auto magic" with a light weight proprietary scripting method.

Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone?
