Send email notification on workflow state change

Post by mayanvic » Mon Sep 17, 2018 4:40 pm

I think this was an old feature request but adding here for tracking.

Basically, when a document is transitioned to approval state, would like to be able to trigger an email to the approval role users to view and approve a document waiting. This way all users do not need to be continually logged into Mayan watching the notifications page for stuff needing their attention. Most approvers will only need to login when a document is waiting for their approval.

Current manual workaround is for the accounting admin to move document to approval state and manually select email document link to the approver's email they keep on a sheet for reference.

Thanks again for the hard work.

Thanks for the request. We have an item in the long term list to add a workflow action to email an user. But your case scenario sheds light in an important consideration: mass mailing. Noted and will see if we can work on this for the next version. Thanks.
