New Activity Notification For Inventories


This notification type can be used for sending email alerts whenever a new inventory record has been added.

For example, email alerts can be sent whenever an inventory transfer has been made.

Setting up or modifying the notification

To set it up, go to the Manage Inventory table > Options Notifications.

On the Notifications page, choose New Activity Event.

Choose which Service you want to receive notifications for.

Under the Send The Email To section, you have the option to either enter email addresses or choose a data capture field that contains an email address.

If the recipients are different for specific inventories, then you need to have their emails recorded on the inventory’s record. To do so, you need a Data Capture field with the Answer Type set to either “Email”, “Select” or “Hidden”. For “Select” or “Hidden” Answer Types, specify the email address in the Options section of the Data Capture settings. “Hidden” Answer Type, can only have one email address, whereas “Select” can have multiple emails defined, but only one will be chosen when filling out the forms.

Enabling or disabling the notification

Indicate if the notifications should be sent or not. This setting is what you would also use to turn the notifications on or off.
