Creating Mail Notification Activity

In the Adeptia Suite, Notification is used to send mail to users about the execution status of a process flow. You can add the Mail Notification activity anywhere in the process flow. You can add more than one Mail Notification activities in a process flow.
The Mail Notification activity is of two types:

  • User Defined Message: This type of mail notification is used to send custom email message to any user during execution of a process flow. Any file can be attached to the mail.
  • Process Flow Summary: This type of mail notification is used by the Adeptia Server to dynamically send summary of a process flow execution.
