ECS Monthly Tips & Tricks
Email Notifications in Laserfiche Forms
Laserfiche Forms can be configured to send email notifications to alert users when they have tasks to complete, or there are other updates to the process. When a task is assigned to a user you can configure an automatic notification email that lets them know a form has been submitted and is waiting for them to take action.

  • To add a notification in Laserfiche Forms, navigate to the Design tab, double click the user task in the Process Diagram
  • Under Assignment Options, select Email users when this task is assigned
  • Modify the subject of the email as desired
  • Under Attachment, you can use variable to attach files that were uploaded to a form. Additionally, you can select Attach form and choose to attach a PDF copy of the form as it is currently assigned, as it was at a previous step in the process, or as it would be populated with current process data.
  • By default, the body of the email contains a link to the task, Click Done
  • When the user task runs, the person the task is assigned to will receive this email.
  • The email service task also lets you configure an automatic email notification
  • Double click this task to configure it to send an email to any email address

By using the user task in the email service task, you can automate communication in your processes, keeping everyone in the loop and ensuring everyone gets the information they need.

Webinar: Bridging the Generation Gap:
Communication and Collaborating in a Multigenerational Workforce

Most workplaces today are a mix of five distinct generations – Traditionalists or the Silent Generation (born 1928-1945), Baby Boomers (born 1946-1965), Generation X (born 1966-1980), Millennials (born 1981-1997) and Gen Z (born 1998 or later). Each generation brings its own particular strengths – and unique quirks – to the team.
In this session, learn the ins and outs of bridging generation gaps, including understanding communication and technology preferences. You’ll leave with a toolkit of proven communication tools and techniques to unite employees of differing generations.

Upon satisfactory completion of session assessment, webinar attendees will receive 0.75 CMC Education or 0.75 MMC Advanced Education points.

Date: October 14, 2021
