1 Email, Mutiple Task Reminders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have a task list where some users are assigned 10 or more task, currently I send them email reminders via work flow gen, but instead of getting 1 email with all 10 task, they get 10 emails with 1 task. My question is, is there any way for them to get 1 email with all the task assigned to them. Please let me know, thank you.

  • Hi Ray,

     

    Workflow is hard to get it. And if the workflow start when an item created or changed, it would generate many repetitive content.

     

    You can achieve this with "Alert me". User can create a daily summary and make it send me a alert when a task assigned to me.

  • What you are looking for is that you will assign task but then one email will be sent out with the list of tasks. If this is the requirement, then I would suggest you implement this through WWF.

    That way you can have the tasks created and assigned to individual and then write a custom email sending funtionality to read through the persistant DB database and send out emails.
