Send notification and Set properties

Send notification

To send a notification, first define the recipient users and user groups. Then enter the notification subject and the message. You can also specify the user from metadata or state transitions.

The Add Placeholder buttons can be used to insert values from the object metadata to the subject line or message content (see also the placeholder descriptions under Personalizing Notification Messages).

Set properties

You can specify different object properties and values to be added or changed when an object's state is changed. For example, you can set the Published version label to be given to a drawing when the drawing is moved to the Approved state.

With properties of the Date, Time, and Timestamp data type, you can set M-Files to use the time value of the state transition as the value of the property.
