E-mail notification

 

Hi All, 

 

I'd be keen to see if there is a way to build a notification to be sent out only when an expense report has been sent back to the employee. 

 

Many thanks for any hint!

Re: E-mail notification

@Adriana So, are you not wanting the default notifications to be sent when the status of a report changes? Users will receive a notification email by default when the report is sent back. Is there a reason why you don't want users to be notified about other status changes? 

 

I believe you can build an email reminder for sent back reports, but it depends on if you are on a Professional configuration of SAP Concur. I'm going to assume you are. 

 

Do you have site administrator rights? You will need this to be able to access the Email Reminders screen to set this up. 

 

I've provided screenshots for you. Remember, you need to create the rule first, then the reminder. The reminder will need to reference the rule you created. The screenshots are in the reverse order, so look at the second screenshot first. :-)

I hope this helps.

Re: E-mail notification

Hi Kevin, 

 

Many thanks for the explanations given. 

 

I am aware of the fact that users will receive a notification email by default when the report is sent back.  I am wondering whether I can deactivate this notification completely and build an email reminder for sent back reports (Thank you for confirming my assumption, will test it as soon as I am granted the rights).

Re: E-mail notification

The default notification is controlled at the user level, so all users would have to turn off this notification on their own profile.

Re: E-mail notification

Hi Kevin, 

 

I am a new PA to Concur, and searching topics on email reminders, I found this answered question. I would like to back it up and ask, Where do I start with finding the email reminder template that you show below in the screen shots? 

 

Thanks!

Re: E-mail notification

@JQuimby If you are using our Professional Configuration of SAP Concur, then you would find this by going to: Administration in the upper right-hand corner of the SAP Concur Home screen. Under Administration, there should be an option that says Expense. Select this. Doing so will bring up all the Administrative options you have available to you. They are listed alphabetically on the left side of the screen. You should see an option that says Email Reminders. That will be where to start. 

 

Let me know if you have any issues. If you do, probably easiest to send a private message.

Re: E-mail notification

Hello,

 

Employees already get the notifications when the status of the report changes.

However, one of my organisations is asking if we can set up email reminders for reports that are on returned status and have not been resubmitted.

 

We can set that up per the screenshot below right?

We can just change the frequency.

 

thanks!

Re: E-mail notification

@Tessdelafuente yes, you should be able to. You can have it set to trigger the reminder "once when condition is met" or have it send follow up reminders every day, for example.

Re: E-mail notification

Hello!  I have created my own email reminder for when a user owes the company money.  I have it applicable only to the test group, but no email notification was sent (even though the test user has my email).  Will test users never receive reminder emails?

 

Thank you!

Hi Cheryl,

 

I believe they need to be turned on by SAP in test environment.
