ByDesign: Email subscription for Business Tasks

Use Case:

Based on the business process, tasks(approval, notification) are created and assigned to the responsible person(s).User can see these tasks in Manage My Area or Inbox workcenter view.


User A is creating a shopping cart and this goes to approval for user B.

If user B logs in to the Byd System then he can see and act on these tasks.User may desire to receive an email to be triggered for certain kind of important tasks, so that they can act on them quickly.


Business user can subscribe for email to be sent whenever certain kind of tasks are created.For example, if user wants to get email for shopping cart approval, then he could subscribe for email for that task type.

Detailed Explanation:

Step1: Business configuration:

      Hello! This is a very informative post. How would we go about changing the email address these notifications are generated from? (If we created a similar donotreply address in our domain?) Thank you!
