    Title:
    Send Notifications to Requester Based on Need by Date without using Confirm Receipt program
    Content:

    Hi All,

    We were trying to send notification to all requester's based on need by date (- X days).

    As per note id : How to Send Notifications to Buyers Based on Need by Date ( Doc ID 2064289.1 ), we were able to create iBot.

    But in our case email should trigger to individual requester having different email id's with corresponding purchase order details.

    Similar to what we have on confirm receipt notification detail section. Also there is no action required on these notifications.

    Any idea on this?

    Thanks,

    Nishanth

    Hi Ashok,

    Not sure how it got deleted.

    For this requirement we just created a BI report with Bursting definition with Schedule trigger.

    Report Contains Basic info like Purchase order, Location, requester, Need By Date..etc

    Condition:  whenever we have data in this report it will burst email to requester based on Bursting definition

    Here we use schedule trigger do avoid blank report output in email notification.

    Thanks,

    Nishanth

      Great! Thanks. We were going to post an article for this, but as you have done this already,  we don't need to create one. This post should help if other customers require similar reports.
